Bobo just had a birthday and turned five! He's so pleased to be a year older. Camera is still out of order, so no pictures of our birthday boy and his Batman party. Nut Brown was the party planner and he made the piñata himself, even. There was a Batman cake, and a treasure hunt when it turned out that Joker had stolen the contents of the piñata. It was very low-key but fun. The low-key part was also good because we are pretty sick with a head cold at the moment and weren't up for all the guests we had invited on the day of the party. Thankfully only half of them came.
Bobo is still working on reading - he's getting better and better and never argues with me about practicing any more. He also just learned to play Uno and is ready to take anybody on in a game!! This past week he learned to roller blade without holding my hand, which is excellent. He figured it out when on a walk with me and Rosebud, when Rosebud was walking too slowly. He loves to laugh and tell jokes, which are five-year-old jokes, which means that he's always saying, "Get it? Get it?" at the end, because he's so pleased with his own cleverness. So often I don't actually 'get it' but I tell him I do just to enjoy his laughter.
