5


yep. my baby is now 5.

This is my cheats version of an icecream cake... he thought it was pretty good!

His 'party' is on Friday night so this will do till then.

He had a good day at school & I had a fantastic one at Playcentre.

He was a bit sad in his lack of toy presents from us (we are tired of putting them away... actually we haven't been, we have been collecting what is left out each night & storing in a washing basket in our wardrobe... there have been a few sad moments... but they get them back after a week) but then we found a parcel that was tucked in beside the recycling bin... & he hasn't got off the scooter since! Thanks Granny & Pa.

& yes, he's an April fools baby. born at 5:30am on 1st April 2003. I now have a 7 year old, a 6 year old & a 5 year old. He had to be an April Fools baby.

Happy Birthday to Ethan! My b'day is 31 March and I have always been ribbed about "almost" being born on April Fool's Day ... I didn't know anybody born on 1 April until now!
I like your "cheats" ice cream cake, very cute.

Happy Birthday Ethan! Wow, it seems like yesterday you had 3 preschoolers! Where did that time go?
I'm guessing he is well ready for school and you'll enjoy the extra time for you.

Nothing wrong with your 'cheat's birthday cake - I think it is awesome ... definitely a scrappable pic.

Happy belated birthday wee man.

Wow 5 already. Where does the time go. My baby turns 5 in November and I am dreading it all ready. I'm sure it is worse when the youngest goes. I hope your coping well Lara.
Love the icecream cake :)

It's a change of an era when you get them all off to school. Well done for surviving this far!
