I won't be modest about this. I am an awesome wife who puts together the best surprises. Theme: superheroes. I sent him on three surprise missions of increasing thrill levels. My husband not only got to round around the city hanging out with his friends, but he got to try out some things he probably wouldn't have signed up for on his own. He got an intro lesson in scuba diving, and hopped aboard an Olympic bobsled for 3 G's of Cool Running's track.
No, the little one won't be getting any Olympic level sports in for his birthday, but eating a whole cupcake by himself will make him equally happy.
But the best part of this year?
Christmas at home!
Even though my little one was born before Christmas, if you remember, he didn't come home until March, which is when we were finally able to have our first Christmas with him.
This year we're doing Christmas right. It. Will. Be. Magical! Because after a year filled with up's and down's, I think our whole family deserves it.
Who knows, maybe we'll even see some two front teeth and first steps this Christmas.
