Yep, I am mother of the year. My oldest turned 6 almost a month ago and I’m so very promptly getting it blogged. I’m amazing
No more telling people how old he is on one hand. Tucker now has to use both hands.
This was Tuck’s first ‘real’ birthday party. Up until now, the parties have pretty much consisted of brother, sister, Grandma, and Grandpa. Since he is still convinced that he wants to be an owl man when he grows up, I thought the perfect place to have his first ‘real’ party would be out at the Eagle Valley Raptor Center. When we were told that there should be no running, yelling, being loud, etc… I was beginning to wonder about the fun factor for a bunch of 3-6 year olds. But honestly, the kids could have cared less. The animals were absolutely amazing.
Grandma Willey made that absolutely adorable owl cake. She did such a fantastic job. Mr. Lockwood aka ‘Owl Man’ was so impressed. He asked if he could put pictures of it in his brochure Thanks Mom! It made the party perfect.
I love this owl. My high school mascot was an owl. This one reminds me so much of good old GP.Tuck got to feed one of the birds since he was the birthday boy. It happened to be the vulcher. Kinda gross but ok… He looks like he’s sick right here….those dead mice were nasty…… but really he was just taking a bow….Dead mice flying through the air…
And the sweet little girl in red is Katie. Bless her heart. Every class has a Katie. She was not at all impressed with the Trix on Stix. She asked me if I had brought any other treats. She said she only likes healthy cereal like Lucky Charms and Fruity Pebbles. Oh sweet sweet Katie…
Abs of steel…Oh Tucker…. I can’t believe you are 6. You are in school and have completely grown up overnight. You can sound out simple words and now read to me at bedtime. The beginning of the school year started off pretty rough. Lots of tears and long goodbyes in the morning. Now you get out of the van and walk in like you’ve been doing it for years. So many people have told me that once a child enters Kindergarten, don’t blink because you’ll miss everything. Those people were so right. The first quarter is already done. Why does time go so fast??? I love you my little man…. more and more every day.
