Today’s Ryan’s fourth birthday. He spent the whole day saying “I in charge of my birthday” and I basically let him do whatever he wanted all day. He was a fan.
He got his main present last night, a new scooter. He got on it and the first thing he said was “oh, I tan do it!”
He started his birthday with doughnuts for breakfast. And two doughnuts when his mean mama normally only gives him one. He alternated bites.
For lunch, he wanted to go to Red Robin but he didn’t want to order any food. He just wanted a root beer float. (The theme of him being in charge of his birthday was mostly sugar, iPad time, and not having to pull up his own pants in the bathroom.)
He wanted rainbow cake this year so he helped me make that this afternoon.
He also helped with the frosting and kept saying “I am a big boy!” while he spread the frosting on.
All my kids were born in daylight hours so we’ve always tried to take a moment of birth picture with them. (At least until Elizabeth ruined that by growing up and going to school- she was born at 11:35am.) Ryan was born at 6:00pm and fifteen seconds. The fifteen seconds isn’t taken into selfie account.
He wanted no candles and no singing. He was very clear. I mimed the happy birthday song at him and he thought that was pretty funny.
The rainbow cake was a hit.
He took some of his new Legos to bed with him tonight. He was pretty happy. Definitely a successful Ryan birthday.
