it's the thought that counts, right?

Adam, who is four, likes to climb in our bed in the early morning hours. This morning was no different. Except that today is my birthday. We had this conversation when he woke up:

Adam: You like hot cereal for breakfast, right?
Me: Yes.
Adam: With just bananas, right?
Me: Right.
Adam: And how much water do you put in it?
Me: Half a cup.
Adam: So how will I know what buttons to push on the microwave?
Me: Why's that?
Adam: I want to bring you breakfast in bed.

So of course I got up and made it with a little help from Adam, but he was so sweet to think of it on his own. I took the picture with my new 50mm 1.8 lens from Chad. The black candles...they are left over from my last birthday so you know I am on the other side of 40 now. All of the sudden 40 doesn't sound too bad!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LYNETTE! How does it feel to be IN your forties now?! ;) Don't worry, at least you're in your 'early' forties. (That makes it sound a little bit younger, doesn't it?!)

How sweet of Adam! You have taught him well how to take care of his mom. And I'm sure he's following the great example of his dad too!

Hope you have a brilliant day!!

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
You look like a (perfume) model,
And you smell like one too.*

*I had to add that extra word perfume so you wouldn't wonder what a model smelled like and it might not be good. It's all good.

Loved your breakfast almost in bed.
