Well I should have guessed it would happen. At 4:30 this morning a very excited M2 jumped into my bed announcing it was morning. I shushed her quickly and told her it was no where near time to get up yet. I must have fallen back to sleep because the next thing I hear is the clammer of feet bounding down the stairs. I hear a squeal from Little Man “WOW look at the presents!! WOW look at the cake so cool!!!” I roll over it is 5:20 am, definitely time for coffee.
He is hopping up and down in anticipation as I explain to him that it is WAY to early to wake M1 or Little Bit so he will have to wait for a few more minutes. He looks disappointed but I remind him we WILL do it but not right this second. Little Man and M2 go running off to play Power Ranger as that is the most logical game at 5:30 am. I had totally forgotten how exciting birthdays could be but smiled to myself because yep today I am contributing to the happiness and I love that feeling.
Well it is 6:30 and a reasonable time for everyone to get up so I must be off to watch presents be opened. Happy Birthday Little Man may the year ahead be full of adventures where good triumphs over evil.
