When your birthday falls on Shrove Tuesday, it makes for an interesting birthday dinner. Pancakes and ice cream cake!
One of the 2 gifts that he begged for was a Rubik's cube. He received it in the morning, and then played with it all day. By dinner he was consistently able to solve 1 side over and over. We'll see how long it takes him to figure out the rest!
The other gift he had begged for was a drone. He got that, too.
Finally, his big surprise present at the end of the day was.... a new mattress.
For years he's been complaining about how uncomfortable his mattress was. We ignored him for a long time, but finally decided it was time to get him a new one.
When we were switching out the old one last night, I noticed the name "Merritt Hutchison" labeled on it. (This was Pete's grandfather.) He died in 1982..... So, I guess the mattress was REALLY old! Ooops! Sorry Milo...
But at least he now has a nice new one.... if the springs haven't been broken yet.
We love our lively, opinionated, happy, affectionate, creative, clever, insightful little 7-year-old. We pray the Lord blesses him greatly in this next year!
