Five


You need to be reminded - repeatedly - that you have presents to open.

You can change a transformer from robot to airplane in three seconds flat.

Each morning at breakfast you say, remorsefully, "I'm sorry I dumped out the Special K," even though that was, like, two days ago.

Happy birthday, sweet boy. Don't fly away from me too soon.

Happy Birthday, Bub! Lovely post, Bea.

Five. It's a good year.

Mad said...

Oh this makes me so nostalgic. I've been learning about dear Bub since before he turned 3. He seems so grown up. And I'll bet you anything that he can count beyond 39! now.

Happiest of days to both of you.

Omaha Mama said...

I sure am enjoying 5, it's a great year.

HarryJack's Mom said...

Oh, how lovely! Happy Birthday, Bub - may 5 be the most Super yet. What a wonderful sentiment, that's how I feel all these days. Thank you for sharing :-)

Aww, happy birthday, Bub!

Mimi said...

Let me join the crowd saying: FIVE? But he was THREE five minutes ago ... oh wait. That was two years ago.

Happy Birthday, Bub! What a big kid you're becoming!

Happy Birthday! I didn't realize his birthday was so close to my girlie's - she turned five on Monday.

Kyla said...

Happy birthday, Bub! I can't believe you are FIVE!

Patois said...

Oh, wow, five is so spendid. I love how sweet and filled with remorse he is. My daughter constantly apologizes for past "sins." (That were never sins to begin with.)

Bon said...

belated but heartfelt happy birthday to your Bub, who is so beautiful it hurts to look at him.

Amanda said...

Oh those memories. Hopefully one day he'll remember days with you like he remembers the Special K–suddenly and as if it has just happened.

Susanne said...

Happy birthday to Bub.

And like the others I feel like time has just whooshed by.

Beck said...

Five! Five is AWESOME.
And perhaps you should send him over to my house to give us Transformer Lessons. We don't have the knack.

Bea said...

Bon - I can't believe I had to Google that to figure out it was My So-Called Life. (I was thinking Breakfast Club - at least I had the high-school part right.)

kgirl said...

Five?! Holy moly. Happy Birthday Bub!

How did five come so quickly? Happy birthday, Bub!
