Word Of The Week – Birthday

This week our word of the week is


Today we celebrate Ethan’s 5th birthday. It’s going to be very different from how we normally celebrate as Ethan will be at school. Instead of filling the room up with balloons this morning this will happen when we arrives home.

We have a birthday tea planned and tomorrow we are going to Legoland and I’m very excited. I have asked Ethan if he want’s to go to Legoland and he keeps saying No! Hopefully he will enjoy it.

So this week I have been trying to prepare for Ethan’s birthday but time has run away from us. This means I will be running around like a mad thing today before he comes home.

I really can’t believe my baby boy has turned five, he really has grown up so much this past year and have made so many positive steps forward in his development.

I really hope he has a great day today and doesn’t find our birthday plans for him too overwhelming.

    I just realized that our sons have the same age. Mine will be 5 next month. I know how excited you are! I have been reading your blog for more than a year now and I have seen Ethan grow from the first time I have read a post. Happy birthday to your boy =) #wotw

      2010 was a great year to have boys ;0). Thank you for the lovely comment, has it really been a year! Can’t wait to see what your boy gets up to for his birthday x x

  2. Ah, Happy Birthday, Ethan! I found my daughter’s 5th birthday a few months ago strange, too, as it was her first at school. Though like Ethan it fell on a Friday which I think makes it a bit better! Hope you all have a great time at Legoland x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

      Thank you, It was very strange waiting for the off to officially celebrate. I think next year his birthday is on a weekend. I suppose it is just a sign of growing up :0(

  3. Happy 5th birthday Ethan and hope you have a wonderful time celebrating it at Legoland tomorrow. We’ve been to Legoland today for the start of my birthday weekend 🙂

      Thank you. It was really good at legoland but he wasn’t sure when we arrived on the Saturday. The Sunday was a perfect day, apart from the odd moment. Hope you had a great birthday too x

      Thank you. Legoland was hard work for us but we all had fun. Didn’t really think about what it would be like taking a baby too ;0)

      Thank you. He had some moments, queuing is a big issue even with the pass, but we worked around it as best we can x

      Thank you. I’m glad he enjoyed himself, I do worry how he will react to the celebrations x
