Happy Birthweek, Michael

Michael's birthday was on Tuesday, which would ordinarily have meant we would awaken bright and early and head down to Bright Futures. They had the day off for winter break, though, so instead the kids piled into the car in their PJ's and we went to Dunkin Donuts.

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?

If you still have leftovers from the birthday cake, you're pretty disciplined.

Ours disappeared pretty quickly during siestas and after bedtime. (Funny that...)

That sleepy pj picture is too adorable!

I say celebrate it for another week. As long as there's chocolate, of course!
