On Bennett's fourth birthday, he asked for a TV in his room. Andy and I made the mistake of telling him, "When you're ten." Of course, he has been reminding us of that every single year - and now - yep - he's ten. And, considering the majority of the time, he is responsible, respectful and has good manners - he got his TV. In typical Bennett fashion - he created his own regulations for acceptable television use, and promised to still rise up each morning to watch the news with his daddy.
It was a wonderful evening to celebrate - and focus on laughter - and after the kiddos slept, andy and I began the balloon prep.
Thursday, we all went to school and B was able to share his double digits with his friends - and he got so many birthday cards and texts and videos - he felt pretty special. After school we packed up again for Rose - and arrived just in time for chili and cake - a Ham cake, of course.
