The youngest muppet has been counting down the days since the start of the month. His birthday has been on his mind since the middle guy celebrated his in July. As I tucked him in to bed last night I kissed his head and told him that it would be his last night as a five year old and that in the morning he would be six. He smiled and then sat up quickly, he announced to the middle and oldest guy that they had his permission to wake him up in the morning no matter how early it was because he could not wait to be a six year old.
This morning we were up early for another reason, the oldest muppet has a tummy bug and so at 5 am we were all up. The youngest got himself dressed after breakfast and went out the front door, I followed him and asked where he was going. He announced that he was going out since he was six now. I told him that it was 7:30am and he could play out in the front but he wasn’t allowed to be ringing door bells at that hour. He agreed and waited on the front step for his dad to come home from night shift.
Once my husband was home we opened presents and the three muppets explored the new toys together. He agreed that we would celebrate as a family tomorrow since the oldest guy was sick. After a while the youngest muppet asked me to show him pictures of him as a baby, he loves to see the photos of him and his brothers growing up. His father told him this morning that our lives would not be the same if he hadn’t come in to our family. Six years of fun, giggles, crazyness and never ending surprises Happy Birthday little man!
