A Whole Hand!

Me=Terrible Mother.

Jarrett's birthday was Wednesday and I am just now getting a post done about it.  In my defense, Wednesday was a terrible day. Our washing machine broke down, I had 2 extra children (one with diaherra), I had my monthly migraine and we had people in and out all day to give the birthday boy his spankings presents.  (that last part wasn't terrible, just one more thing going on).

Jarrett, however, had a great birthday!  As he would say he's a "whole hand old!".
Can't believe my little 5lb. preemie is 5 years old!  Jarrett is (I'm told) a typical 3rd child.  Easy going, plays by himself for hours on end but yet interacts well with others.  He has a great sense of humor (as do all my kids, really) and loves to make others laugh. This saves him from a lot of beatings time outs as it's hard to be mad at a 5 yr. old when he's looking at you crossed eyed.

A fellow bloggy mom recently did a birthday interview and I loved the idea.  So, I stole it.
Here's Jarrett's internet debut:

Jarrett, how do you feel, being a whole hand years old now?
It's a lot of fun.

What was the best part of your birthday?
When Grandma Dee gave me a car with a marote (car w/remote) and Grandma Edith gave me my towel and Grammie got me Legos.
(You will notice nothing is mentioned of the present his parents gave him???)

What is your favorite thing to do?
Play with my cars and go to the beach. 

Do you like having 2 brothers and 1 sister?
Yeah.  Except when Josie is mean and I have to fight her. 

What is your favorite part of school?
Getting Skittles. 

What is your favorite food?
Spaghetti and I like pizza.

Who is your best friend?
Ethan. That's easy!

What do you want to be when you grow up?
A dog.  Just kidding!!  A teacher. 

What's your favorite movie?
Lightning McQueen. 

  I have loved being Jarrett's mom, these last five years.  I look forward to many, many more.

I love you Jarrett!!       


  1. What a sweet post! I love the interview, and I love that he wants to be a when he grows up! :)

  2. He's an adorable and funny little guy. Love the car with the 'marote'.

    Hope you don't suffer from the six day variety of migraine at least... until I got the sumatriptan, that's what happened in my life.

    See your doctor!!

  3. So cute!!!! And 2 of my kids say "marote", too!!! Happy birthday, Jarrett!

    And what a fantastic idea, this birthday interview! That bloggy mom friend of yours must be some kind of genius! ;)


Please comment! Even if you just say "HI!".
