Brayden turned 7 over the holidays…yes ALREADY. Where did those years go??? And where do I go to claim them back!!??
He insists that he WILL NOT stay 6 for my benefit. Nor will he stop growing as per my other request. Why not?!!! Boohoo.
I can hardly call him “My baby” now that he hardly looks like a baby and only has three more years until he’s ten!!! Oh what a terrifying thought!!!
No we didn’t have a big party. We tend not to go into that sort of thing. We celebrate the day simply together as a family.
First Ethan hid Brayden’s gifts around the house. Both boys love treasure hunting for surprises.
I love how my boys share even their birthday gifts with each other. There is hardly any “yours” and “mine” in our house. (Unless we are talking about “MY” chocolate!!!)
Then we baked a birthday cake together. Nothing flash. Just a simple cake mix as the fun part is helping mix,
licking the beaters
and of course the bowl.
But the highlight is being allowed to choose the lollies you want to decorate with and adding as many as humanly possible to the top of it.
Daddy then lights the candles, we sing “Happy Birthday” and enjoy cake BEFORE dinner. So naughty but oh well. Your birthday only happen once a year.
