I need to sit down for a second.
My son turns 5 tomorrow. FIVE! Need a flashback?
This is him when I first started this blog. I started this blog just a few days after he turned 1. It was actually being designed on his 1st birthday. The highlights? Back then, he used to actually eat everything I made including veggies and fish. Now…he wouldn’t touch it. He looks so much like my daughter in this picture, I swear they are the same baby in different genders.
Now tomorrow, he’s going to wake up to a birthday surprise of balloons and streamers all over our stairway to welcome him into the glorious year of being FIVE! The year he officially starts elementary school and suddenly the years speed up faster than I can blink.
Now, in all of this somehow I’ll scrounge up a menu plan because that’s the only thing keeping me from bursting into tears. That’s another thing, I used to not be so emotional until I became a mom. Pass the Kleenex…let’s get to this menu.
Happy Menu Planning! I’m off to prepare this amazing cake from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen for a very special birthday boy!
