I remember last year wondering how did I become of a mother of a 5 year old so fast. This year seems to have gone by even faster and just like that my firstborn is 6!
Since he had a huge party last year (and his little brother had a big party this year) we decided to not have a party and instead go to dinner with immediate family.
Since he loves to dress up you knew I had to make sure he was extra fancy for his birthday celebration. I had purchased this 4 piece Nautica Suit from Macy’s a few months ago and this would be his first time wearing it. The hat I got from Joe Fresh Kids.
His brother was also dressed in Nautica and had his own hat to match as well.
For some reason this kid loves Applebees! We don’t go often, maybe once a quarter but we decided to go for his birthday. We got some balloons, gathered family and had a phenomenal time.
Of course we had to wait for a really long time to seat a party of 9, but I gave the birthday boy free reign of Sasha and here are some of the pics he took (including a tons of selfies with his dad!).
His Godmother (the bestie) also came which made him extra happy because he absolutely adores her.
Finally we were seated and able to eat–and the boy did just that. He ate so much from tortilla chips to mozzarella sticks to pizza he completely had his fill! He never eats like that so I let him indulge for the night. At the end the Applebees staff came and sang him Happy Birthday and he was shocked. I didn’t get a picture but trust me when I say his jaw was dropped at all this people singing for him!
Time is flying so fast! I’m going to have a first grader and a preschooler this year. I can barely deal. I’m excited though because both boys are becoming more mature by the minute asking me all kinds of deep life questions that I’m not even ready for. 🙂
