My Baby Has reached The Big 4!!


So my gorgeous little boy reached that big mark, he's going to school in September and my first born will no longer be my baby :(
Why do they do it to us! We want them to be babies forever. Theo, however obviously doesn't understand what it means to be a whole year older and gets to carry on totally clueless leaving me reeling behind he he.. silly mummy. 

So Theo woke up on the 22nd February and came into our bedroom as usual, totally oblivious to it being his birthday as we'd all been so ill the week before. He came in tottered into our bed and stared at us... 'Mama (refuses to call me mum/mummy) can we go downstairs pleaase' ' Not yet Theo I've got to go down and sort out the surprise' He looks at me a bit confused... ' It's my birthday!!!!!' ' Yes Theo its your birthday'
So feeling like someone had battered me over the head (still felt poorly) stumbled down the stairs to put up the 'animal' balloons (previously blown up the night before by his big brother) and the birthday banners, after which to wrap his presents. Yes, I know, no planning thought of on my behalf. Naughty mummy.

 When I had finally mustered up enough strength to get it finished I called Theo. The first thing he noticed was not the presents or the lovely banners, it was the balloons on the floor. Then he saw the banners and more balloons and his four glimmering presents. He ripped them open and was so surprised, as what was in there, he had seen a week ago, as I had no time where he wasn't there to buy them, so we had pretended they were for his friend and he
threw a big strop in the shop, so to see them all in front of him he couldn't wait to become the many superheroes that sat before him.

  6. How lovely - an four superhero costumes as well - what a lucky boy...which one was her today?! ;-) And they do grow up far too fast don't they? Mine are 6 and 8, and it doesn't seem too long ago that I was thinking about their first time at School... *sniff*
