Wow! I can't believe the little guy is FIVE already! That must mean I'm... old. Ouch.
Kyle is fun. Kyle lives fun, he breathes fun, he sleeps fun, he walks fun. Kyle enjoys life so much that he can barely contain it. I've never seen a kid that can go as fast from crying to all out belly laughing like Kyle. I know that as he gets older this amazing ability of recovery will serve him well, but as a parent it DRIVES ME CRAZY! How can a child cry over a discipline and 2 seconds after he stops crying (and GENUINELY crying at that) he's bouncing off the walls looking for the next adventure. It's amazing.
There is just too much fun to be had in Kyle's world for such things as waiting. Like waiting to get up. Who needs sleep? Picture this, every morning between 6 and 6:30 Kyle is standing next to your bed smiling at you while you sleep. I don't think Brandi even opens her eyes anymore, I think her body just goes on autopilot and sends him to the toy room to play quietly. Naps? Yah, right! I remember one night this year we had some friends over and they stayed late playing games. It was almost midnight and the kids were just going to bed. Kyle had been going full speed for HOURS. He's laying in bed saying his prayer and he falls asleep mid-sentence. I took a picture, he literally wore his poor little body out.
High energy. Lots of messes. Lots of laughs. And absolutely lots of fun.
And he is going into kindergarten this year... oh my, I don't know if kindergarten is ready for Kyle!
Happy birthday, Kyle, I love you tons big man! Hope your day is as entertaining for you as I am sure it will be for the rest of us.
