H turns 5 in a few days and that has come by so fast. I can not get my head around how quickly. Each year it seems to surprise me that bit more.
We had been asking H what he wanted for his birthday this year and the only thing he came up with was a scooter with wheels that turn and a golf set. Other than that he gave us no ideas whatsoever so we’ve very much had to ‘wing it.
Nothing quite like a challenge around birthday time.
I hope we’ve done alright this time he has a good assortment of toys and clothing. We try not to get too carried away with the amount of presents, Christmas was only a little while ago. Not only that I don’t think its necessary to go too mad and get bogged down with the amount of presents. He’s still young enough that it doesn’t seem to bother him.
He has been getting really excited about his birthday this time, asking us daily how many days he has to go. We also have a weekend of nice things planned for his birthday so he gets a full weekend out of it.
And why not, you’re only 5 once.
