my older stepson turns 8 today, and the kids always get to pick their favourite meal for me to fix for dinner that night (or in the case of the boys, when they’re at our home closest to their birthdays), so tonight we dine on homemade mac-n-cheese, hot buttered peas, and cinnamon apples — and yes, Ethan chose the entire menu, including the peas… DH w/b picking up cupcakes or some other goodie on the way home for us to have after dinner tonight (we still have leftover b’day cake from Viv’s b’day last week, but somehow I doubt that the highlight of an 8-yo little boys’ b’day w/b to have leftover cake w/pink frosting and lots of pastel-coloured roses… ;\ ); we’re not doing b’day cake b/c he already had one at his party this past Saturday…

Ethan’s basically just a good kid — it’s encouraging to see how he’s growing up (let alone how much he’s GROWN, holy cow!!) over the last 2-1/2 yrs since we became a family…
