Happy 4th Birthday

My boy D2 just turned 4 years old. No big party. Just a special dinner, home-baked cake and a trip to A&W for root beer. No presents coz' he has got enough toys and too many clothes. As they say, kids don't need our presents but our presence. Well, we do have a tradition that the birthday kid gets $5 to spend at the store.

Siblings were given special instruction that nobody was allowed to scold the birthday boy. I think he liked that.

He wanted roti canai for breakfast but the shop nearby was closed. So I cooked him pikelets. He enjoyed it with syrup. Such a sharing boy. I said I was cooking it specially for him. Immediately he quipped "I'll share it with daddy and mommy".

The birthday cake: Devil's Food (thanks to Pilsbury for making it super duper easy and fast). BUT I made the chocolate frosting myself. The kids and my niece decorated the cake: sprinkles and skittles. Got some cute candles too.
Digging up all the skittles.

Special dinner: 2 different kinds of roasted chicken, french fries, coleslaw, nachos with salsa.

So, what are some things about this 4 year old of mine?
  • He can read lots of words
  • He can count very well
  • He loves music. He can play "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" and "Baa Baa Blacksheep" on the keyboard. Very diligently memorizes his church primary songs (practices his singing everyday too).
  • Likes to play badminton. When we play, he will say to me "I want to be your servant". What he means is "server" but mistakenly say "servant". He wants to serve the shuttlecock for me.
  • Slowly learning how to write. Below is an example of the work he does: So far we have worked on writing the letters 'a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 's', 't' and 'm'. After he finishes his work, he will ask for 11 or 14 stars.

  • He still laughs a lot.
  • Also can pull a very, very long face and scream very loud.
  • I love to hear him pray.

  • Have a wonderful, funtastic 4th year my boy!
