optional prompt: it's going to be a big, big day!
My son is at that magical age, where he suddenly starts to "get" things. He now has more of an awareness of time, although his awareness involves "Before Christmas" and "After Christmas". But everyday is a big, big day when you are five.
He will wake up today, groggy, and he will remember that he has an early birthday party to go to. The party will be in a park, with lots of playground to run amok on, to jump and laugh and just be alive.
Then he will meet his grandparents at the restaurant of his choice, because every time a member of my family has a birthday, they get to choose where we go for Sunday dinner. Zane chose a steakhouse as the place he wanted to eat, and since this will be one of the few times that I get to eat steak, I'm kind of happy about that as well.
After lunch we will be heading to the nearest store that sells Skylanders, because there's a new version of the game coming out. Zane saved up all of the gift cards and cash from his recent birthday, so he can buy this game. He and his father have been talking about it for weeks.
Once the family gets back home, it will likely be time for some video game playing and some snacking before bath, jammies, and storytime. And as I kiss my son good night, I will whisper "Sweet dreams".
