well today is my lil bug's bday. i cannot believe that he is five. all day i have been reminising as to what i was doing on this day five years ago. i was able to call mikey at exactly 1:21 pm to tell him happy birthday and i tried to explain to him why i was calling on that minute (the time he was born) but he didn't understand. well, here is how mikey's day was: when mikey got to school, everyone shouted happy birthday. i dropped him off and me, his daddy, nonna, and bella came back around his lunch time to bring in the cupcakes for everyone. when we got there, we saw that mikey was wearing a big number five around his neck and had a "happy birthday" balloon on his chair. then ms. virginia put a candle in his cupcake and we all sang happy birthday. mikey thought that was so cool. after i picked the kids up from my mom's, we drove home to pick up daddy and then we all went to beef o'brady's (which is where mikey wanted to go to eat...for the video games of course!) so we ate and i had it set up that they would come out and sing to him when they brought him his piece of snickers pie. he loved that. he got a coffee filter for a hat and the yummiest piece of snickers pie that i have ever tasted. after we left beef o'brady's, we told mikey that we had a big surprise for him. we took him to toys r us. he had recd. a lil card in the mail, along with a $1 gift card. when we got to the service counter, we presented his lil card and he got a crown, a sticker, a balloon, and got a special cart that he got to ride around in. mikey had recd. some money from the asst. chief and from the major for his bday, so i let him pick something out with that. he picked out a gameboy game (which he is playing as we speak :) i hope my bug had the best 5th birthday ever! i love you bug!
