I can’t believe Shay turns 10 today and is now in double digits! I always feels like he gets the short end of the stick with a June birthday. As a teacher, I am smack dab in the middle of the busiest time of the year and my mind is totally consumed with the 46 report cards I have to write. On top of that, I have a staff meeting after school and both kids have soccer games tonight. We are trying to squeeze in a quick dinner out between my meeting and the first soccer game. Not a great day to celebrate, but I thought I could at least try to get his day off to a great start. I decided to sneak upstairs after he was asleep (which meant I had to stay up late, so that was a great feat in and of itself) and decorate his door, so he’ll wake up to a surprise in the morning. I’m just hoping it doesn’t backfire, as he is obsessive about his door being left wide open and often wakes up in the night with a nose bleed. So, I am hoping he sleeps through the night and isn’t too put off by the closed door when he wakes up in the morning. Who could be upset once they get showered with balloons on their birthday?
