7 Years Ago Today

Seven years ago today, one single event happened that rocked my world. Life would never be the same. And I would never want it to be. Seven years ago today, I became mommy for the first time.  He was almost 2 weeks overdue, I was put on petocin for 12 hours and then ended up with a c-section cuz the little booger didn't want to come out.  I should have known that this was his first clue to me what his personality was, because to this day, 7 years later, he dawdles around and takes his time every morning and any time we are trying to get out the door. I cannot believe he is 7 years old, and about to start second grade.  But such a funny, fun, loving and caring boy he has turned into.  And along the way, he has turned into a wonderful big brother.

To celebrate the day, we started with miniature golf, which he has never done before, but loved it...even though I beat him was pretty close...if you ignored all of the times he cheated by stopping the ball before it rolled too far away from the hole.  But hey, he's 7 and it was his first time, so I cut him some slack.

Then it was on to McDonald's for lunch. Then we headed to Chuck E Cheese for a while, played some games, picked out a prize.  We happened to be right next to a Cost Cutters and the boy needed a haircut, so we stopped in there quick.  Finally we ended the day with a birthday sunday at Orange Leaf. If you haven't been there, I highly recommend it.  They sell all different flavors of frozen yogurt and then you get to top it with about anything your little heart could desire.  It smelled yummy the second you walked in the door and it tasted oh so yummy.  Don't know what flavor you want? No worries, you can sample before you buy.  Caiden tried birthday cake, chocolate brownie, chocolate, vanilla, and cookies and cream before he settled on cotton candy.  

Finally we headed home, played some video games and picked up little brother from daycare.

All in all it was a great day, and Caiden said it was his best birthday yet.  

Happy Birthday Caiden! Mommy loves ya <3
