A Noise with Dirt on It: My Son



Happy Birthday, my sweet six year old boy!

Today you asked me if I was sad that you were growing up.

"No, not sad.  I just think there are some things you won't want to do anymore as you get older . . . "

"Like what?" you asked.

So, I told you.  

And you promised to always:
  • Crawl into my lap and let me sniff your neck, even when you are 6'1
  • Hug me at school in front of your cool friends
  • Tell me I'm prettier without makeup
  • Live with me forever (I may regret this one. . . )
  • Always be my little boy
Happy Birthday, honey.  I love you.

And .......................

Later today at your Nerf party, I will be using one of these-


to get you!  Watch your back!

Down here in good ol' Texas, we teach 'em young!

Yeah, we are THAT family!

Happy birthday big boy!
What a load of nerf ammo you have! Looks like tremendous fun.

You cracked me up when you commented that you wanted to sniff my son's neck after watching his whistling video. now i understand your comment.
It's a "snuggle" thing...
(yeah, always been accused of being a blond dyed brown)

Happy Birthday Big Boy (OK, little big boy...) OK, maybe happy 6th birthday would be better...

You are having a NERF BIRTHDAY PARTY??? We did this with my 10 yr old son on his 10th birthday and they had soooo much fun! I'm sure you too will have so much fun!

What a sweetie!! Happy Birthday to your son. Enjoy every minute!

Karen said...

That party looks like fun! What a great idea - we may have to steal it this summer.

Mycrazylife said...

Another neck sniffer huh? Me too. And I hope he'll keep all his promises to you. Boys are much better at keeping those kind than girls!

Have a super party!

P.S. He loves you... said...

You haven't lived until you are minding your own business and you get a nerf dart right between the eyes. Yep...WE are THAT family!

:) Love the photos of the ammo! You are a riot!

Robin said...

Sounds like a fun party. Can we come?!
Don't believe those promises. My 6'1" son hardly lets me touch him anymore! Luckily I still have a 6 year old who likes to cuddle.

Amber (Bringing Good Home) said...

I love how you described him as a noise with dirt. Yup, yup. :)

Have a happy birthday party!!!

Faerie Mom said...

My youngest just turned 6. I had a much harder time with that than when I turned 40!

Worlds Greatest Mommy said...

Super sweet, and Happy Birthday to him.

My little five-year-old turns six in two weeks. I'm not ready. Maybe nerf warfare would help.

Petula Wright said...

Sweet. Happy 6th birthday!

He is so stinkin' adorable! And, a nerf party, how cool is that!?!?!

Bina said...

How sweet! Happy Birthday!

And I've made all four of mine promise to never leave me, and the oldest two have. I'm so sad. Why can't kids keep their promises????
