Loads of people get really twitchy when their kiddos get another year older.
They’re all, “Ohhhh my baby isn’t a baby anymorreeeee!!!” I think about that very thought. (My face looks like this.)
And then I’m all, “but DUDES.” (And yes, my face looks like this.)
“Dudes. You should check out the awesome adventures your kiddo is having now.”
“Yeahhhhh…one time we dressed up as dragons just before new year’s day, and ran around the Lickey Hills. That was FUN…”
It’s ok, watching them grow up. And I love when they have a birthday. (Partly because they get to wear badges as big as their FACE. And I get to play with them in the Soft Play area when they have a birthday party at the gym.)
We also get to eat out in fancier places. Their tastes grow, almost as fast as they themselves grow. Loch Fyne, a fancy seafood restaurant, is one of their favourite places to eat seafood.
But more than anything… With each new day, comes a whole bunch of new things to grin and smile about.
For a fresh and lively 7 year old, kiddo, you do that pretty well. 🙂 <3
