When did this little boy grow up to be this kid?
Max is officially in double didge and it's freaking me out!!!
Max is truly an amazing son, he always has been. He's very funny. He has a different way of looking at the world and I LOVE when he'll tell me his thoughts. He is a lover of hip hop and indie music. He loves making mixes. When he was little he used to write songs and perform them for the family. Now he would rather break dance and tell jokes. He loves to read and play cardboard games(he has always called them this.)
While he can be a very picky eater, he surprises me with the foods that he will eat... like fish, most vegetables, hummus and cottage cheese. He hates sauces, berries and meat.
He is so very kind and always apologizes when he does something wrong. He can be a little absent minded and is always losing his jackets, glasses, lunch boxes, homework. I would say about 80% of the times he puts his shirt on backwards(look at his shirt) Like I said, absent minded. I have no idea where he gets it from :)
I know I am the mom and I am supposed to be teaching him, but I am sure I have learned way more from Max in these past ten years. That is the beauty of motherhood.
This is one of our Birthday traditions. In the morning the boys have to jump through a door full of streamers into their new year. Then they get the breakfast of their choice(they can ask for whatever they want). Max asked for chocolate popovers. I used a new recipe and apparently it did not go over to well. Max took a bite and said, Wow I can't believe I am already SO full. I only had one bite. Can I be done? I asked him, "they don't taste good, huh?" Nope, sorry mom.
SO we had Dad make him the biggest pancake he has ever had.
This picture is not doing the pancake justice, it was huge.Scott and I then took turns doing fun stuff with Max. Scott made stencils and painted shirts with him and I took him to color me mine to make a new birthday plate(ours broke.) Then we let him watch his new Pokemon DVDs tell his brain burst. I would say it was a pretty good day.
