Tonight, around 1 a.m., Oscar will turn seven.
We lied and told him his birthday was today so he wouldn’t hijack the whole Easter weekend from his siblings. Of course, he figured it out (he figures everything out) and reminded us repeatedly that tomorrow is still his birthday. Yes, Oscar. Easter weekend is all about you.
On the eve of his fake birthday, Lucy was as excited as Oscar. Before they fell asleep, Jeff overheard:
Lucy: (seriously) “I love you, Oscar.”
Oscar: (hesitantly) “I love you, Lucy… but… I love Lego. I love Lego.” Happy 7th trip around the sun to the lego-loving, holiday-hijacking, worm-dancing, oldest kid in the house. Easter is all yours this year.
