We celebrated my little guys 6th birthday yesterday! This year we did a joint party with a one of his buddies-  his ‘ex-girlfriend’ to be exact! They were both born on the same day and both love star wars so this theme just worked out so perfectly! I recycled an older project I did long ago for my client nannytata for the video invite.

Printed out 2 posters from the oversized printer at Kinkos for kids to doodle and a ‘tattoo-ine’ station that was too cold to do!

I have to remind myself that it’s not a ‘job’ and I just need to be a mom and forget about making things perfect!

Flash back- This was from our class party last year when they first met. I was mortified that he wouldn’t stop picking his nose in front while the kids were singing. He also wouldn’t let me fix his shirt that he wore backwards.

I accepted the fact that I may never get a normal photo of this kid!

I just can not believe he is already 6 years old. I love every minute of being his mom and just want to soak it all in and never forget the moments we share.  He is kind, sweet and a total goof ball. Still so innocent and excited about everything. I hope he never loses that.
