Well, we managed to avoid a watermelon dinner :)
Thanks to a concerted campaign from Mummy, the brand-new four year old settled on tacos for tea, and scored himself a whopping great jam doughnut for his dessert. Needless to say, he was pleased with his choices, as were the rest of us-- much wolfing down was accomplished.
And see if you can guess what present he loved most-- the play-doh and accessory set from the whole family; the two Ben 10 Alien Force figurines (Spidermonkey and Swampfire, I'm told, for those with a need to know. I know them only as 'the blue one' and 'that one looks pretty cool') from the same source; or the Ben 10 soccer kit his big brother Aiden bought him?
I'll give you a hint: he's sleeping with his shinpads on....
I think it's fair to say he had a good birthday :)
