Although I know he will not remember, we tried to make Timmy's birthday as special as possible. He thoroughly enjoyed having me sing to him and requested it often. I obliged each time. Not only did I want to make him happy, but I also know that is a matter of time before he realizes that my singing voice is strong in enthusiasm but lacking in range and talent.
We began the day with his favorite breakfast
(Chick-fil-A) on our way to drop Robby off at school. Afterwards I took
him to a new indoor playground which was readily enjoyed. He took off
running without hesitation and climbed the rock wall without batting an

(Did I mention that birthdays don't have to be healthy in our house?) He

rest of the day and evening were spent playing at home, watching
cartoons and enjoying his favorite dinner. He seemed to be particularly
impressed with his train themed cake, although the fact that it was
covered with mini Thomas the Train toys was probably the clincher. By
6:30 he was exhausted and fell asleep on top of Puppy blanket on the
living room floor.
I know he won't remember yesterday, but I will never forget how we spent his 3rd birthday.
