Happy Birthday, David!
Grandma made this incredible knight outfit. David is ready for battle!
Some children should NOT be allowed to grow up. They should remain seven year olds and not rush off and turn eight. We tried and tried to tell David he was one of those special kids. We regaled him with tales of how wonderful seven is, no need to move on, we said.
“Raise Your Swords!” “All for one and one for all!”
Would he listen?
No, but then we have an obstinate bunch here at our place. Daniel is planning on turning 12 in April and Sarah seems to think she’ll leave six behind in July.
Daniel was a good servant to His Majesty, David, today.
As if we raise them to grow up. Sniff. Whoever put that kind of thinking into their heads.
“Let them eat cake,” I say. That’ll show them.
David requested a yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Good taste!
I guess we’ll let David turn eight. There doesn’t seem to be anything we can do about it. He is a wonderful boy and a delight to our family.
Joshua gave David the gift of quality time today. He played with him outside, read him numerous books, let him pick the board game of his choice, and, most importantly, let David hit and shoot him at will all day. If that isn’t brotherly love, I don’t know what is.
David makes friends easily, laughs heartily, forgives quickly, and loves deeply. A well-beloved son. Happy birthday you 8 year old!
