My big boy turned 5 today!
Kids are so funny. He told me "well now I'll have to go shopping because I'm 5 and my clothes don't fit me anymore". What a hoot, lol. I told him that clothes had more to do with his height and weight than his age and that his clothes fit just fine. He says, "ooh, ok" :o)
We had already had all the parties so there wasn't much to do today. He was more excited about us getting the camper today than his birthday, lol. His birth Dad called and talked with him so he enjoyed that. It's good that he has that relationship because I think it keeps him from feeling abandoned by them. I think it will make a big difference in how he sees himself and his self esteem as he gets older. Of course his birth Mom didn't call but I was glad about that. She's so much trouble and I don't know what will come out of her mouth. Plus I don't want her to call for a year or two and then disappear because she's got better things to do or is in jail.
I'll tell ya what, it's really hard having to decide what is best for them all the time and worry that I'm making mistakes. You don't know if you did was right or not until it's too late to change it. Let's hope these are all good decisions :o)
