Yes, it's true ... my first born will be 8 this Saturday and it is bittersweet.

I hope he has a fantastic birthday!

I love looking back at pictures and videos of my boys, it's so hard to believe that they were ever that little.

That's what I keep saying ... "I can't believe you were once so little". It's bittersweet, isn't it?
Justin is getting an iPad2. He has saved up his allowance for quite some time now and is chipping in to get one for himself. It's an awful lot of money, but with combined monetary gifts along with his allowance, the extra cost to us wasn't really that much. I sure do hope Christian doesn't want one for his birthday in September. He'll only be 7 - but it's only fair right? The only problem is - Christian is lazy about his chores, so he rarely gets his full $5 weekly allowance. I see some stress headed my way come September where this matter is concerned.

I hope his birthday was good! We are going through that type of situation right now. We got my oldest DS a new Nintendo DSi XL for his birthday, his last one was over 3 years old and one of the hinges broke on it. Now one of the twins has been whining about it, asking if he could get one on his birthday. We've told them no since there's aren't even 2 years yet, they can wait a bit longer. I'm hoping that maybe for Christmas we can do it, just makes it more expensive since there are two of them. I also told him that Devin is much more responsible with his DS over the last couple of years, and they need to demonstrate that same maturity.
