So much has changed since this little boy came into our lives four years ago.
I can hardly remember the life I had before having children, it feels so distant at times. I do recall that it involved a lot more sleep and time to myself. I laugh now when I hear people say things like "having kids won't change me or my lifestyle". I'm afraid there is something very wrong if your life doesn't change after having children, unless perhaps your pre-kids lifestyle involved being woken up all the time, having someone accompany you to the toilet (or at least try their darnedest to), constant mess and incessant chatter about rocketships, how to put out a fire on the moon, birds, diggers, cranes, the moon, how to make water, how great mobilo is, giant trees and silkworm eggs (to name a few topics from today's conversations)
But here we are
four years on
I'd say it goes by all so fast
except everyone always says"'it goes by so fast"
(probably because it actually does go by so fast)
except each day, they don't always seem to go by so fast
the truth is the days are long but the years are short
So here is Max yesterday, all grins after blowing out the candles on his 3rd cake for the day....
And being four means you get 4 cakes right?
Or so he seems to believe.
Last year he requested a pear cake for his party.
This year he's asked for a solar system cake. Yikes!
I blame all this talk of having now been around the sun four times
as well as this rather presumptuously named tome.....
I'm off to work out how I can make a cake solar system. Did I mention the request also specified an icecream cake as well as including "a rocketship on it's way to the moon"
