Today this little boy turns four! I've never met a kid who has so much energy but is as lazy as I am. His party was yesterday and let me tell you, I wish I was a kid again. He got so many cool toys. The bulk of them being Transformers. Babe and I tried to transform some of them, but they can be tricky. They ended the day with swimming in the ice-cold pool.
After their bath he asked me to play Star Wars with him on XBox 360. I asked him if it would be too hard for me and he said no. For anyone who has never picked up an XBox paddle, there are about 10 extra buttons than the original Nintendo paddle. After awhile of playing he was stuck playing R2D2 while I got to be some guy who a light saber. He kept yelling at me that I was doing things wrong. He put down his paddle and said, 'I'm going to go play with Ellerie, but you can keep playing.'
Then Gavin, Ellerie, Babe, and I sat down and watched an old school episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and a Scooby Doo movie. It was past 10, so they really got to stay up past their bedtime. When Dawn came down to say it's time for bed, he laid on the floor and exhaustedly said, 'I am just so tired of walking.' So I carried him up and we headed home. Such a good day.
