Then, while the others slaved away over their academics, Michael got to play his DS. And later, for dinner, he was treated to Chili's where he received a complimentary Chocolate Molten Lava Cake.
Of course that was almost a week ago. Since Daddy missed his Chili's outing, tonight we went to our traditional birthday restaurant for a dinner hibachi-side. At the end of the meal, Michael donned the birthday hat while I tried not to think about how many other heads have been in it. And two servers sang a Japanese birthday song, which sounded suspiciously like If You're Happy and You Know It. After the song, he enjoyed another complimentary chocolate treat.
I won't mention that every day this week the kids have also convinced me to pull out leftovers from Michael's birthday cake. I suppose when everyone is willing, there's no reason not to make a birthday party last for a week, right?
