Well we officially have a 9 year old in the house. He no longer needs a car seat. It's his last year as a one digit number. And he is growing very tall. For his birthday he asked if he could have breakfast in bed. The novelty wore off pretty quick, and soon he was at the table to eat the rest of his 'hungry-man's breakfast' that he had requested. Eggs, bacon, and pancakes with blueberries, whipping cream and maple syrup. Seriously.
