Officially Five

I don't know about your kids, but as preschoolers all of my slightly irregular children have had a difficult time with the concept of the actual birthday versus the birthday party.  Bonus was the latest child to grapple with the difference between the day he was born and the day we had his party.  His actual birthday is March 20.  However, because of Spring Break, the fact that his sisters both have their birthdays in March, too, the beginning of the softball season, the addition of a roller derby practice schedule to the Reckless calendar, and his mother's general life principle of flying by the seat of her pants, we were unable to have the party until now.

And because he has felt like he could not be officially five until the party had occurred, I was unable to bring you all the fun of turning five until today.  Without further ado, my precious FIVE year old...


I'm not sure if he is supposed to look excited or what...

The one moment where everyone was getting along...

The birthday dessert at the restaurant he requested.  It's a girls night out or date night type restaurant.  I guess he's getting in the game early.  He did bring a date.  It was her birthday, too.  That's her elbow because she would kill me if I posted her picture.  She's nearly 30 years older than he is.   

I was so proud that he actually said, "You have to open the card first."

Clothes.  He did insist on wearing it to school the next day though.

The giant three layer whoopie pie birthday cake I made per his instructions

The birthday crew.  I want you to notice that Bonus is completely sandwiched by the ladies.  His buddies are shoved off to the side.  The adorable one in the hot pink sweater kissed him as she left the party.  He later denied this to his sisters... 

The event he talked about for months

They rode this at least five times in a row.  Apparenly, the girls got in and added the tokens.  He got right up there and slipped under the seatbeat right as the ride started.  Way to make your own tokens last, Bonus!


Bonus with two of his girlfriends.  Currently, he has three girlfriends, one ex-wife (the "marriage" to Kernsie's daughter and the "breakup" is a hilarious story), and one ex-girlfriend that Ryan stole in the Frogs class.  But he's not bitter.  Can anyone say Big Love?  I am going to have to watch this kid like a hawk...
