Labor Day weekend is always a great weekend in everyone’s book right? An extra day off work, no school, and for us….Pierce’s birthday!! Six years ago today, on Labor Day, I went into labor with Pierce. He has continued to be the same easy going, happy, go with the flow baby. Or I guess I should say little boy. I have never met a child that is so full of life, and can make an entire room laugh just by being himself. (His teachers may not think it is always funny….he is quite the class comedian. I am convinced they secretly love it, because they do not send notes home, but write me emails telling me the funny things he did/said that day).
For his birthday he was just so easy to please. He wanted pizza and the pool. Nothing more, and absolutely nothing less. He had a couple friends from his class come, and we rented out our neighborhood pool for a few hours. It was so nice, and just enough excitement for the kids. If you have been around these parts for awhile, then you know we like to keep things low key on the birthdays. No Pinterest all-nighters being had for some decor, no fussy photo booth props, and if we are being honest……this year I didn’t even wrap the presents! Ask Pierce if he cared. But, I did make the cake!! Which was a first for me! It disappeared quite fast so I think it was a hit.
The whole weekend was spent doing what Pierce wanted to do, despite his brother and sisters giving their two cents. It was wonderful! I do wish I had pulled out my camera a few more times, because the pictures were limited. That is the sign of a good time, right?
And this morning I will send him off to school, treats in hand, as a six year old!
Time is a real thief, but I am so excited to see Pierce take on this year. His main concern is how his hair looks “for the ladies” as he puts it!
