Another birthday today and Tank is excited. He has been counting down the days along with Pete and Re-Pete and was not too happy when their day came along on Monday and he had to wait two more. The "official" celebration will be next week but we are doing little things to make him feel special today. Each birthday child wakes up to ribbons hanging in their doorway and a special breakfast of their choosing. Tank wanted "sgetti" (spaghetti) but I reminded him that we only eat that for supper. So he chose apple cinnamon muffins (while George tried to convince him to choose chocolate chip). Unfortunately he couldn't see the apples so he wasn't happy about that. (I shredded the apples rather than diced them).We sang to him and had a candle on the muffin as well. Missy Blue seems to think she needs a candle also. I am thinking we will each make our own mini pizzas for supper. Tank also does not have any chores to do today but for some reason he really wanted to make his bed.
Tank has been dubbed "Captain Chaos" by his Grandpa and that fit him quite well but I have noticed that lately he isn't getting into trouble as often. He still has a stubborn streak but not to the extent that he was. Tank is still my very loveable little boy. If you would like to read more about my sweet boy click HERE.
