Yesterday was my youngest son’s 3rd birthday.
We had such a busy lovely day yesterday I didn’t get a chance to blog.
He was so excited he woke up before any one else in the house, snuck downstairs and I was woken up to him shouting up the stairs
‘Mum I got a bike, I got a bike!’
We all rushed downstairs before he opened up the wraped gifts. He loved his balance motocross bike, his kit and helmet but was just as pleased with the toy motor bike that cost £2 from the supermarket and he now sleeps with it next to his pillow!
Birthday boy did have one complaint though.
‘Where’s the tree?’ He said
‘What tree?’ We said
‘The Christmas tree for my birthday’
Bless his little heart he was expecting the house to be decorated and all his birthday presents under a Christmas tree and its little things like that that just make me love him even more.
Hubby thinks I’m mad but I said we might start up a family tradition of a ‘birthday tree’.
We decided against a birthday party and instead birthday boy got to pick a family day out. He chose the beach and so we headed off early.
The kids had a great time on the little rides, we ate the BEST fish and chips on the beach, and then grabbed our buckets and spades to go make sandcastles and paddle.
Well when we got to the beach the tide was all the way in. No sand in sight it was all under water. We spent the next hour walking and walking to look for a sandy bit and ended up hoping in the car stopping at every car park looking over the edge to look for sand.
Luckily we ended up finding a bit of beach that had some sand not covered by water which pleased the boys we rushed down to make sandcastles and paddle as quickly as we could. DS1 ended up right in the sea almost up to his shoulders, shivering while saying
‘Come in its warm!’
DS2 went in up to his waist and loved it and DS3 ran in and out laughing and dug holes in the sand and then…. pooed himself because he was having to much fun to go to the toilet. We had to run back to the car clean a very, very messy child and then the car started having a disco with the warning lights.
Luckily we got home ok and we were all having such a good day that we just laughed about it all.
Oh and I totally cheated on the birthday cake. DS3 wanted a motorbike cake and so I bought some mini motorbikes and stuck them on a ready made chocolate cake he couldn’t have been happier with it and it was the most stress free birthday cake I have ever made 🙂
