science boy's Birthday

Well, my oldest turned 8 today. So last night we took 4 boys (including science boy) out to the movies (after pizza and cupcakes at our house). We took one home (not due to behavior..he had a test this am) so it was science boy and two of his friends spending the night. science boy gave up at 12:30, he came upstairs..said one of them was disturbing him and went to sleep in his room. They woke up at not too bad. Science boy had decided last week he wanted to go to Chili's and then out to ice cream. I thought it would be a good idea to have them sing "Happy Birthday" to him. NOT! He was totally embarrassed and started to cry. Yes, just call me mother of the year! I felt so bad. He told him that when he was 4 he had asked me not to do something like that..Ok, I can't remember to take the laundry out of the washer..I can't remember 4 years ago. I apologized, and promised never, ever to do it again. Well, a few minutes ago he came in and said that he was sorry and he should have been nicer to everyone. When I apologized again, he said no, he's the one who is sorry. Wow, they do grow up fast.

So, even though it's late, I'm going to try to start my menu plan for next week.
