Monday was quite a milestone birthday in our family. My youngest – my baby boy – turned 10. A double digits birthday. That means that all of us are double digits (and by default, I guess that makes us old!).
AJ has never been much of a fan of traditional toys…so when he made a birthday wish list earlier this month, he wished for things like balloons and a new sonic screwdriver and a Doctor Who keychain. Honestly, I had a blast shopping for his presents – partly because I’ve gone into my local Hot Topic so many times that they know me as “The Blogger Who Met the Avengers.” Yes, when I walk in the store, they know who I am. I guess I’ve reached celebrity status – last time I was in the store, shortly after my press trip to LA where I interviewed the cast of the Avengers and got my picture taken in between Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans, they took a picture of me to post on their internal employee website. My picture and story got over 80 likes (which is apparently a lot). How cool is that?
AJ’s birthday was so much fun….but a little on the crazy side. I took on a little too much. Between taking him out to lunch (our birthday tradition) to shopping for dinner and cake and ice cream to making a labor-intensive dinner (chicken pot pie) and an even MORE labor-intensive birthday cake (see the directions here)…I was completely exhausted by the end of the night.
But he ended the day happy and that’s all that matters, right?
Oh…and I got to eat 4 days of leftover birthday cake. Bonus.
