Jeremy turned NINE today! For the past month or more he has been asking to go to Chuck a Rama, because a new location opened up pretty close to us in Lehi. Since it’s brand new, it has always been busy and we kept saying that we would wait awhile before checking it out. Well a couple of weeks ago he asked if we could go for his birthday, so we said we would. Then this past week, the Christmas catalogs were discovered by the kids, and Jeremy found something that he actually asked for. He usually doesn’t ask for anything, it’s very rare for him to make any indication of something that he is interested in. He is quite different from Ethan. When Ethan is interested in something he is OBSESSED with it and makes sure you know exactly what he likes and wants. So for Jeremy to request something from the catalog for his birthday, was kind of a big deal.
We started out the day with taking the kids to a workshop at Home Depot. They got to make “give and save banks”, basically a bank with two sides, one for giving and one for saving. Then we headed over to Toys R Us to pick up the item that Jeremy requested from the catalog. It was a Pokemon building block set. Then we ran a couple of other errands, before heading over to Chuck a Rama for a late lunch/early dinner. We were there for nearly two hours, and by the time everyone was finally done Jeremy declared that he was “so full”. I said that’s good, because since we weren’t home today I wasn’t able to make him a cake. He told me that that was ok. He’s a pretty laid back kid. Also, since we went to the toy store today, to get the thing he wanted, it wasn’t wrapped so there weren’t any presents to open tonight either. So we came home, the kids got ready for bed, and Jeremy sat at the table to play with his new Pokemon building blocks.
