It’s crazy?! It seems like you were just being born and now your 7 years old?! Where has the time gone, I guess time flies when your having fun, on July 28th T turned 7 years old we can’t believe it already. It’s hard to believe he’s 7 already, but there’s times he acts like he’s in his 20s and it drives me nuts, I guess the joys of being a parent and him being an only child (which I’m hoping soon that will change 🙂 ). T is an amazing kid, he cares so much for others, he can be very polite when he wants to (any kid is like that lol) and his imagination is crazy! I just wish that as he gets older the attitude wouldn’t get worse but oh well, he’s a unique child and somethings are harder for him to understand. He has signs of Autism but also signs of ADHD, so the docs are really sure what it is, and we refuse to medicate our son so we try our hardest to understand him and control how he acts when he has his moments.
Now onto T’s birthday! This year we didn’t do a party or a cookout or anything, instead right on his birthday, daddy made him pancakes for breakfast and then we did presents. I made him a blue velvet cake with little frosting on top, and when D got home from work we had cake. T really enjoyed his birthday, even if we didn’t do much he still had a good day.
The next day which was a Friday myself & my mother took T over to our fair to watch the fireworks, wish D could have been there but he had to work. T was a little bummed he couldn’t go into the fair but we didn’t have the money because we had it saved for the next day which was a big birthday surprise. 🙂
So, now it’s Saturday July 30th and we proceed with our day like normal but try to get things ready without T figuring out what we are doing. Then we all get in the car and start heading towards Perry, NY. When we get to our destination T freaked out! We took him to Silver Lake Twin Drive-In, it’s our favorite drive in, it may be a bit far from us but always worth it. We were going to see Secret Life of Pets & Ice Age: Collision Course and he was so excited he’s been wanting to see these movies so bad! As usual we are there like 3 hours before the drive in actually opens, so after we got there we got a text someone was on their way. It was T’s aunt when she showed up he got even more excited. Then we decided to hit the arcade, we had about $20 put aside just for the arcade and only spent $14 of it and T had a blast as always playing the different games.
Finally it’s time to line up and get into the drive in, we’re always early so we can get in line early to get a good spot 🙂 T decides he wants to wait with his aunt in her car so he goes with her, we get into the drive in and T takes off playing at the playground. I would say about 1.5 hrs later someone else shows up……it’s uncle B (yes he calls him exactly that lol) T spots him across the playground to where we were parked and ran across screaming UNCLE B!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! T was so excited to see him, he ran up and jumped into his arms, he absolutely loves his uncle. It’s time for the movies to begin, T moves his chair next his uncle and we all sit and watch the movies. It was an amazing time seeing T spend time with his uncle and enjoy 2 movies with him. T said this was the best gift ever over and over. Honestly, it really is because memories last a life time (for some lol) toys and that are just material things that eventually are nothing to a child.
All in all from Thursday to Saturday T had an amazing birthday, he had so much fun and has some great memories to look back on. Happy Birthday little man, you mean the world to mommy & daddy we love you!!!
