I bet you didn't know that turning 6 years old gives you certain super powers? Well, according to Sam it does.
Me: "Hurry and get in your seat so I can buckle you in!"
Sam: "Mom, I can do it. Now I am 6. Six year old's know how to buckle up."
Me: "You didn't yesterday..."
Sam: "Yesterday, I was 5."
Although, after school, he wasn't sure if he was really 6 because someone else got sung to in class and got the big birthday sticker and Sam didn't.
Sam: "The girl in my class stole my birthday. Now I don't have it anymore. I think I am 5 again..."
Me: "No, it's still your birthday. Maybe they will sing to you tomorrow!" I knew this was a common mistake because Sam has only been going to this school for a few days.
Sam: "I don't think so, mom. She stole it, my birthday." Then after a few minutes of thought: "I think daddy can help me steal it back..."
Although his faith in is new age was challenged, he was reassured when he came home to birthday decorations, a pathetic excuse for a Captain America cake, and a small stack of presents.
All and all, despite the cake from Hades, the day was pretty darn fun! I love birthdays!!
