Happy Birthday Brennan

Today my eldest child turned 5 years old. I am the mother of a 5 year old, how is that possible? Five years ago, almost to this minute, I pushed a 9lb 12 oz baby boy out of my body with no drugs! I felt like super woman at the time. And looking back on the past five years, I still feel like super woman!

Sweet Brennan, today you are 5 years old. You told me today (while sitting on the toilet :)) that you "still feel little, even though you're 5". You are a true joy. You are full of life and energy. You like anything having to do with the outdoors. You are my child that makes me wish we lived in the country. You are happiest when you're dirty, sweaty and outside. Some might dub you a "strong willed child" but I can't call you that because that would be like the pot calling the kettle black. You are just like your momma! You know what you want and you're gonna get it, you're mischievous, and you buck the system just enough to make people take a second look at you. Here are some funny things you've done/said lately....

*You told me the other day that "our van is appropriate for the rain".

*You like to play "church" with Charlotte. This means pretending to drop her off at her class, fill out her name tag, tell her to have fun while you're gone, etc. Very Cute.

*You are (still) obsessed with Star Wars. Everything is a light saber to you.

*You came home from preschool with marker on your ear and told me you tried to trace your ear.

*You call Kindergarten, kindergarten round-up. We went last week for Round-up, but now you say you'll start Kindergarten Round-up next fall.

*Sometimes when I'm getting dressed you'll tell me I look "rock n roll". I have no idea what that means.

*You love hanging out with the youth group kids. You don't really want to talk to them, but you love being part of the crowd. If they talk to you about Star Wars though, then you'll start talking back!

Brennan, I'm blessed to call you my son. I hope you had a great 5th birthday. I love you!
