Patience and the Six Year Old

So just a quick update on Josh's birthday "weekend."

He had a great day at school...he got to take m&m cookies - his favorite. They sang to him, AND he got a birthday pencil.

He was pretty happy coming home from school today.

We ran a few errands, and then came home around 4 pm to wait for Dad to come home at 5:30 pm, to resume the rest of the festivities.

Well...between 4 and 5pm Josh asked when he was going to get his present about every 3 to 5 minutes.

Yeah. It was "cute," in that wanting to rip your ears off kind of way.

So, at 5 pm, Josh comes in and says, "Mom, I don't think my birthday is going very well." six, I guess patience is not his strong suit.

But, promptly at 5:30, Dad came home, we went to Red Robin (Josh's favorite), and came home and Josh got his present...phew.

It turned out that this was his "best day EVER."

Thank goodness. That was a close one!

More birthday fun tomorrow.

Heaven help me.

Okay, so you forgot to tell us what his present was! Sounds like a fun night!

Yes, I want to know what he got too! We celebrated Eve's birthday early because of my surgery, so she didn't get any presents on her actual birthday. She told me it was the "worst birthday ever." She was spoiled silly all week...6 is so great!
