Today is his birthday! We went to a corn maze this afternoon and then had a family party tonight. I made the cake, and must say it was worthy of http://www.cakewreck.blogspot.com He loved it, though and called it the monster blob cake. I was sure the rip-stick we gave him was going to be his favorite gift, but it turns out we can't get him to put down his new book - Diary of a wimpy kid II - Roderick's revenge!
Hard to believe that we've only had him for 11 years - it's hard to imagine life without him now. That's the deal with kids, right? They come and are so hard to get used to and figure out and then in a few short years they are counting how much longer it will be until they are driving. Which actually happened just a few mornings ago when stringbain reminded me that he will be a driver in only 5 more years.
I'll just enjoy 11 and be glad I don't have to deal with that yet!
