Eight Things About Sasquatch.

29 Apr
  1. Sasquatch is eight years old today.
  2. This morning he took cupcakes to school to share with his class – orange poppyseed with dark chocolate icing.
  3. He has a vocabulary that routinely stops adults in their tracks, even me: this is a kid who uses words like “correct”, “response” and “maintain” in everyday coversation.
  4. He is also still an eight-year-old boy, who can spend five minutes spinning around and around, and the next ten staggering about like a drunk, bumping into walls and hooting with laughter.
  5. He has promised that when he is “a big man like Daddy”, he will buy me a farm and build me a Secret Underground Lair (when he says it, you can hear the capitals).
  6. His birthday dinner was homemade sausage rolls, fairy bread, and a chocolate mudcake. So I have spent pretty much the whole afternoon in the kitchen.
  7. He recently announced that he’d quite like to be a scientist. He hasn’t yet chosen a branch of science, but my money is on Mad.
  8. We spent the afternoon/evening playing with Lego and watching his new Ben 10 DVD. Way more fun than the Royal Wedding.

I tried to take pics, but the light in the family room is completely arse inadequate, so I’ll take some tomorrow so you can see what an eight-year-old looks like.

    A very belated eight birthday to him (I’ve been away and computer-less)
