Cleaning and scrubbing will wait ’till tomorrow, but children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow. So quiet down cobwebs! Dust go to sleep! I’m rocking my baby. Babies don’t keep. – Ruth Hamilton

Here is One Boy Who Needs to Celebrate

Mack's actual birthday was on Saturday-the same day as the party, so we made Friday his day!
I can't seem to get ahold of my emotions right now. Here is one little boy who needs to celebrate. His eyes have seen things that no little boy should ever have to see. He has felt pain that no little boy should ever feel and he has had life experiences that shouldn't happen to anyone! The definition of strong in the dictionary states everything this boy is! This (almost) full year of being 2 has been hard. Now we are going to celebrate being three and bringing us a normal three year old life!

We have been bogged down with Mack's sickness! This is NOT who he is. He is a funny little guy full of energy. He loves his siblings and will play with them all day! Everything his big sister has, he wants! His true passion is trucks, trains and cars! Mack can make any toy into a dumping matter for his trucks! Mack is one rough boy...too rough at times!  Seeing him at school has opened my eyes.  He was beyond ready for school.  He had one minute of sniffles, but otherwise had been a very independent guy.  I see him on the playground and he waves, but carries on in the huge sandbox. I strongly believe he needed school.  He needed to feel normal-not in a hospital.  He has been there for four days and his lab numbers JUMPED!!!  Huge!!!!  I have to thank his teachers and my school for letting him have this amazing opportunity!!

Happy birthday Macklin-you have brought this family the most joy.  In your own little way, have shown us how precious life is! I love you!

On his special day, I again, had to work.  So, his Nanny came and picked him up.  He couldn't go somewhere like Chucky Cheese, so they headed to the mall where he had lunch and played at Barnes Noble-they have a Lego table and a train table.
We wrapped presents and made a special brownie cake

He had so much fun...
That he just can't stay awake!!!
The morning though, we did give him one special present!  His Thomas Train Tent!!  It's a huge hit!

 This is his tent connected to Lincoln's tunnel
 That night Nanny and Papa H. came over for pizza and Mack ran to their car because he knew there was a bike for him!!!!  Thank goodness Nanny wanted to get that for him!!!

 Sure enough he got a Cars bike with a tool kit.  They all like to play with it!

 Oh there behind Mack is the Skid Loader-the smallest piece of equipment that was in our yard for the party.  He was in awe when that was dropped off!

 Then it was time for cake!

Mack, these are the days I will cherish FOREVER!  The love I have for you will be forever, but these little moments will go so FAST!!
