And so he turned 5!
Victoriously, so says his sister 🖐️
It was easy to put him on his best behaviour the past week because I'd been conveniently blackmailing him with: "if u do not do , I'll cancel ur cake/celebration/party/my leave (choose any one)" *evil mom!* 😈
All in jest, of course! But the little man ain't taking any chance. 🤭 But he really, really took pride in reaching this milestone. Not even when he turned 3 or 4. He volunteered that he should help out more in washing his milk bottle. He insists on opening & closing the car door by himself, even though he struggles with it. He tries to convince us that he can bath by himself. His independence is extremely important for him as he exclaims loudly to anyone who asks him his age that he is 5
Granted his wish was a star wars themed cake featuring R2D2 & BB8 (about the only characters I know!), which he painstakingly chose from polarpuffs_cakes. Added a Darth Vader & a star trooper figurine toppers (ok, 2 more I know lol!) from qoo10sg, after I was disappointed at the actual size of the original disney star trooper collectible truck received in the post. And boy, were we glad that the star trooper OEM mask, which took a while to ship, came just in time
A simple celebration in Skool with his family (that's us!), his spontaneous classmates (some of whom he grew up with since toddler class) & caring teachers (most of whom recalled that toddling tot fondly), graced by the grannies who gladly accepted his personal invite, presence is still the best present, ever
It's certainly the work leave worth taking, to see that sparkle & beam in his eyes & his curved lips that's almost joined to his ears although he was really looking like this most of the time 😁❤️
Happy happy birthdayyyyy, my dearie!
Stay inquisitive & curious, even though I hope u keep ur prying fingers to urself more often! 🙈
Tomorrow then we ask Google if we can put out fire with soap, ok? 😘
