I was not aware until recently that PJ Masks is a new show, but in our house, we are all in. My kids know the theme song. They come up with PJ Masks stories to play out. Even Derek will sit down and watch an episode with them in the evenings and chuckle at it!
Last week was Wyatt's 6th birthday. I cannot believe that my baby is six years old! I still remember that surreal moment when he was born, with his tiny little cry, and the tears that were streaming down my face. This kiddo is something special, and I love him so much.
We are trying to tone down the kids' expectations of birthday parties, because with four kids so close together, we can't do a big party every year. However, when they request a certain theme for their birthdays, I see no reason why we can't oblige! Wyatt wanted a PJ Masks birthday "party", so I tried my best to accomplish that theme for him.
This was nothing fancy guys, not nearly as elaborate as some of the other parties I've thrown, but Wyatt was still so happy with it! The only things Derek and I did:
1. Buy PJ Masks plates and napkins.
2. Hang decorations that matched the color scheme.
3. Make homemade Cat-boy, Gecko, and Owlette masks for the kids.
The masks were a big hit, and the kids ran around singing the theme song with the masks in front of their faces. It was adorable!
We opened a present in the morning, and a present at night, and in between we took a trip to the museum as a family. It was a good celebration of Wyatt's sixth birthday and my sixth year year of being his mom!
Buddy, I am so proud to be your mama. You are such a thoughtful and smart boy. I love how you are always so ready to make a new friend, and about your loyalty to the friends you have. You are energetic and funny, and I love all your creative ideas of things you want to build. You want to do what's right, for the sake of others around you and for the sake of obeying God, and I love that you want to follow Jesus and care about such things even at six years old. You make this whole motherhood thing even more of a blessing. I'm so glad you are mine.
I love you, bug, and I can't wait to see what six years old will bring.
