Oliver at 4

Thursday, December 31, 2009

Oh my stars, my boy is 4.

Some days I look at him and wonder where the hell the time has gone. [warning: TINY jaundiced baby if you follow that link]

Some days I look at him and wonder how he’s not yet 13 because he certainly ACTS like a teenager sometimes. And oh the days can be LONG.

But he’s a bright spark, a ball of energy, SO observant, always listening even if he pretends he doesn’t hear us.

As we are away, we taped this interview in advance. On a sick day we had together. Here’s what the boy has to say for himself.

He’s being thrown a party on his actual birthday (today!) by his paternal grandmother, which will include 2 lovely second cousins, while we are in England He’s also getting a birthday party when we come home at an indoor playground. He’s very lucky. So are we.

    Oh so cute! Why do I not film my kids like this? Well, I am going to now. I would be such a crappy mother if I couldn’t steal ideas from other people.

    First: Ikea! Brilliant, hilarious.
    Second: It is *unbelievable* how much almost-four-year olds are alike. My Colum won’t be four until the end of April, but it’s nice to see that a lot of his quirks seem to be age appropriate.
    Third: Happy birthing day to you, Emma!
