This little Christmas bundle recently turned three.
I can hardly believe it's been three years since Little Brother joined our family. I can't imagine, and can barely remember, our family without him.
This morning I watched Little Brother's birthday interview on video, and I smiled all the way through. A few excerpts:
What snack do you like best? Strawberries.
What is your favorite sport to play? Basketball.
What is the best show on television? Fireman Sam.
What music do you like best? Hip-hop music.
What is your favorite song? It's a Hard-Knock Life (from Annie, sung as loudly as possible).
What book have you loved reading the most? Batman and superhero books.
Who is the coolest person in the world? Mama.
Who are your best friends? Mama.
What is your favorite color? Brown. And gold.
What are you best at? Playing games on my electronic, the Batman game.
What is your favorite treat? Chocolate kiss.
What do you want to be when you grow up? Batman.
If you were a superhero, what special power would you have? Fighting bad guys.
What are you afraid of? When Dada puts me to bed and turns off the light.
What makes you happy? Turn the light on.
What makes you sad? When Dada turns off the light.
What have you learned in the past year? To play Batman.
For Little Brother's third birthday, we planned a trip to an ancient little amusement park for kids called Kiddie Acres. It turns out that was a dream come true:
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? Kiddie Acres.
If you had a lot of money, what would you do with it? Go to Kiddie Acres.
What are you most looking forward to in the next year? Going to Kiddie Acres.
If you had one wish, what would it be? To go to Kiddie Acres.
So we did. We went to Kiddie Acres, and the grandparents joined us. It was a little chilly, but I'm not sure Little Brother even noticed. I'm not sure who had more fun, the kids, or the grown-ups who got to watch the kids.
Then we took the birthday cowboy pilot to Starbucks to warm up and eat cupcakes.
There were even a few presents.
We love this little guy. Even when he's challenging us with this Three-ness, we love him.
