oh my glob.
we have a 7 year old.
tomorrow is mohamed's birthday. that means that as of tomorrow i am the proud mother of a 7 year old. ha! hey guys, remember how in 2012 i went from 0 to 4 kids and one of them is in 2nd grade??? holy crap. things that make you go mmmmmm... i have kids. big ones.
today's tuesday's best is one of my all time favorites. we had a little birthday celebration for mo, complete with a giant card, cupcakes (made a full batch just to have one for him to see and oops i need to eat them now), and candles.
i present to you, an international birthday party.

|the finished product|
|betty crocker from a box... who am i kidding?|
|lighting the candle|
|blowing it out|
|reading the card... which of course he couldn't because it shows up backwards. fail.|
|reading to us (yeah that's right we make our kid work on his birthday. what?)|

we sang, we laughed, we cried (ok, deen is the only one who cried because she wanted a bigger space to sit than anyone else - yikes - but it's not a party until someone irrationally screams bloody murder, right?), we celebrated. it was fantastic.
to my handsome, smart, talented, brave, loving, faith filled son...
i am so proud of you. i miss you. i love you even more.
i wish i could be there tomorrow to watch you open the remote control car that you've been asking for since april. please don't run over your sister's feet with it, ok?
