Dude turned 14 a few weeks ago. Though I can see my kids get older and taller and voices start to change, the birthdays always surprise me.
I mean, 14?!?
It seems just yesterday he was my 4 pound baby!
As he’s getting older, themed birthday parties are a thing of the past. This year, invited a couple close friends
to the movie theater a few days after his birthday.
On his actual birthday, we were exceptionally busy with extracurriculars and went out to eat at his favorite restaurant.
He requested his favorite: chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, but had no idea how to decorate it.
Eventually he let Spud take over the planning who suggested recreating Dude’s Minecraft avatar.
It was a simple design that made my boy smile!
