Currently {Drew, the birthday edition}

looking forward to his birthday party this weekend after

inviting darn near every boy in his class (Drew has a real concern for not wanting any of his buddies to be left out...tough call as a parent as neither our house, nor my patience, can handle that many kids.  However, we took Drew's lead on this one and decided to go with it.  We'll see how it all pans out on Saturday afternoon!)

continuing to express his dislike for Spanish class

doing math and reading homework every night

swapping between Minecraft and Disney Infinity, his two newest video games, during game time

asking to eat all the time but

wanting only junk (Not sure what's going on with this - the kid says his hungry but wants nothing that will fill him up or give him energy/nutrition.  Packing his lunch every day has become quite the challenge!)

requesting playdates with his friends who play the Pokemon trading card game

sleeping on the top bunk (We bunked the boys' beds a couple months ago and we all love the new set up and the extra space it provides in their room.)

participating in a leadership collective at school

dreaming about owning all the Legos in all the world

wearing jeans that are becoming slightly too short with shirt sleeves that are also becoming too short (he just.keeps.growing!)

anticipating the beginning of basketball in a couple more weeks

watching Transformers Rescue Bots and new episodes of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Big Nate books

talking a blue streak - he has so many words!


We saved the cake for tonight, considering the cupcakes and ice cream we had yesterday.  Per Drew's request, I made him a lemon cake, a la how my mom used to make them (lemon cake mix poked with holes with a lemon juice + powdered sugar mixture glazed on top).  After singing, making a wish, and blowing out his candles, Drew asked if he could have one of the leftover cupcakes from school.

Stake to the heart.  Oh well.  More for me!
