We recently celebrated Big Brother's 6th birthday!
While, of course, a lot of time, energy, and effort goes into a birthday and party, we often don't focus on it's aftermath.
One of my recent tweets was about said aftermath.
At 6:15 am the day after his party, Big Brother skipped happily into our room, ear-to-ear smile still firmly attached to his face, without a hint of being tired, to ask me, "Dad-E, can we finish building my Legos?"
We spent the next 90 minutes or so (yes, ninety) engrossed in Lego-dom.
We were quite pleased with the result:
(Definitely sweeter than anything I built with Legos as a kid.)
While I didn't plan to get up at 6:15 am to work on Legos, some of our best parenting moments are made when we least expect them. It was a great time!
Happy Birthday, Big Brother!
I love you, Lego building buddy,
