Jono went to his first birthday party today--I mean one he got invited to. He was so excited. I bought a cool gift for him to take. It was a yellow caterpillar tractor that makes all the noises and has real movements. Yah, he wasn't so excited about that--the giving it away part. Lol. He got "attachment syndrome" -- you know-- couldn't keep his hands off it. Try explaining to a four year old he can't keep the cool toy you just brought home and showed to him. Hahaha! Yah, that was a fun part of my day. I had to cajole and threaten to get it away from him to wrap it for the birthday boy. Poor little guy -- he wanted to keep it so bad. Oh well, this too shall pass.
It was a great birthday party, though. The mom and grandma made "super-capes" and masks for all the kids attending--and there were about 15. So much work but also so cute and fun. They held the party at a park and the kids had a blast.
We had to pick Jono up right from there to go straight to his soccer game. He was very in demand today! Lol. Pretty sure he had a fun day.
Here's a shot of him at the birthday party with his friend Ellie.
