What He Had to Say on His Fourth Birthday

Off to the watch the Cubs beat the Diamondbacks.

So, so, so many baseball cards.

Getting a little practice in.

Cake for 50, maybe 60 people.

Brendan's 4th birthday was mostly about baseball -- watching baseball, playing baseball, talking about baseball, and collecting new baseball paraphernalia. Then we capped off our baseball-filled day with a really tacky, fluorescent-colored Lightening McQueen cake. So all in all, pretty much a perfect day for our Brendan.

He is what sweet Brendan had to say in his birthday interview. I just love this kid.

What do you want for your birthday? Lightening McQueen stuff like my friend Daniel has. He has a bunch more guys than me. He has the big trucks that those characters go inside.

What do you love about each person in our family?

Daddy – That he goes running.

Mommy – That we sing songs at night.

Ellie - She goes to school.

Colin – He's cute.

Where would you like to go on vacation this year? Florida and Pittsburgh and Arizona.

What are some of your wishes for this year? Practice riding my bike. When Ellie was 4 she couldn't climb the rock wall at Pump It Up so maybe I am going to try to do that. Or maybe when I am 5. I'm just a little nervous when I get up to the top.

What makes you happy? Playing baseball.

What makes you sad? Nothing.

How old is your Mom? 60

How tall is your Mom? 8 feet tall

What is her favorite thing to do? Go out to the park and play.

What does Dad do for a job? Works on documents and talks to the judge. The judge is an important guy. Daddy goes around the block to the courthouse and he talks to the judge. The judge sits up in a high seat like the book corner in my classroom. Dad talks about his brief.

What is your mom's favorite food? Red peppers.

What is Dad’s favorite food? Chicken on his smoker.

What does our family like to do together? Go out.

What going to be when you grow up? "I don't want to be a Butler basketball player because . . . will Butler still be playing then? I don't want to get hurt so I'll maybe play soccer. I don't want to play hockey because it is rough game. And football is a rough game. Lacrosse is not a rough game. And I'm going to be a dad with one kid. And a lawyer. Who will be the mommy? And who will be Ellie's dad?"

Who are you going to marry? Mommy.

Anything else you want to talk about? No. Can I have a mango smoothie now?
