It's a big day. A certain little man is turning six. SIX. Not sure how that happened, but here we are.
Watches out for others
Keeps up with the big boys
A caring, sensative older brother
A friend to all
This year I thought I would conduct a little interview with Ben so that I can document exactly where he is at in this moment. He was in a pretty silly mood. I'm not sure all the answers make sense. But it was fun.
Me: Hi Ben! How you doin?
Ben: Good! Really Good!
Me: What's going on today?
Ben: (silly) Ma birfday! This birthday cake is awesome!
