In spite of everything, Max had a good birthday today. He had a special breakfast of an egg/sausage sandwich and apple sauce with cinnamon. He went off to camp with a lunch of a turkey sandwich, Peanut Butter Cups, Teddy Grahams, and Doritos. Not a fruit or veggie in the bunch, much to his delight.
After school he had some chocolate milk, by his request. Then we were off to dinner at Red Robin where he chowed down on mac and cheese, steak fries, and a chocolate shake before having a few bites of his birthday Sunday and being too stuffed to continue. Lots of eating today. That makes it special for him.
Then he got to open presents - basketball shoes, a basketball drawstring backpack and a basketball headband from us. Davan added to her Spiderman lunch stuff with these cool popper things:
He also got gifts from my parents and my MIL. Tomorrow is his party.
Meanwhile, we're getting the usual behavior of delaying, nonsense questions, non-stop talking/singing/noise making, etc, etc. All the usual without any of the extra-ordinary (like running away).
He has no idea that things are going to be changing drastically for him. That's how it should be on his birthday.
