My 6 Year Old

Yesterday was Daniel's 6th birthday. I didn't have time to blog yesterday, so I hope my belated tribute to him will be sufficient. First, 3 birthday stories. 1) Daniel and Launa were having trouble settling down for the night, and they needed to get a good night's rest because it was the night before Daniel's birthday, and he had school in the morning. Jeremy went into their room to tell them to go to sleep. Daniel said he couldn't sleep, you know how all that goes. Jeremy told him that if he didn't lie down and be quiet, he would cancel Daniel's birthday. Daniel said,"You can't do that!" Jeremy told him that he could do anything, he's the dad. To which Daniel replied, "Well, I'll just reset it then!" Story 2) Daniel was headed up to bed (before the previous story took place), and as he was going up there he called over his shoulder, "Goodnight, Mom! See ya when I'm 6!" Story 3) When Daniel got up on his birthday, he went downstairs and walked outside where my in-laws like to sit and enjoy the mornings. Daniel asked them what they were doing, and his papaw said, "I'm sitting in the swing." Daniel told him, "Well, it's my birthday, you should be celebrating!"

That's Daniel in a nutshell, and for your viewing pleasure, photos of my 6-year-old.

LOL. Wow. Do you think if I refuse to go to sleep, Jeremy would cancel MY birthday? I'd really appreciate it. Or maybe, if I can find the reset button, I can go back to being six again.

To think, in 12 more years he can vote for people like Obama too!

Yeah, I know. He's a third of the way to "adulthood". Just crazy.

Happy B-day Daniel, too bad they decided to cut off your hands. Guess you should have gone to sleep after all.
