Thought it would be a good idea to record his signature at this point; hope this doesn't result in privacy issues after so many years of calling him "A"!

Sadly, it's the  most low key birthday EVER; M is working and we have to stay home because E is learning how to use the potty.  We are doing absolutely nothing.  We do plan to go to an amusement park for A's birthday, once this potty thing is under control, but who knows when that will be.  We also celebrated by getting Dunkin Donuts for breakfast; a first, I believe (not that they haven't HAD DD, but we've never gotten them as breakfast at home that I can recall)

We did have a few of A's school friends over for a birthday party on Saturday.  It was a drop off party and we just pulled out the pools and got some water cannons and had a ton of fun.

At 6 years old, A is kind yet bossy to his brother.  He takes great care of him, but loses patience with E's inability to share.  He loves baseball and soccer; we signed him up for karate due to his excitement about it (he chose his summer sport) but when he learned he'd have to choose between karate and soccer in the fall, he stopped wanting to go.  His reading amazes me; he is excited to read and says whatever he can read on signs, notes, etc.  He often guesses based on the first letter of a word (Sasha might be read as Santa, for example), but overall, it's really impressive.  He still needs afternoon naps, but almost always resists them.

A few weeks ago, we went to the beach and he tried Boogie boarding.  He was so excited about it, but today told me he doesn't want to do it anymore.  He also said he doesn't want to go to the beach anymore.
