Carson just stood in front of me and asked if he could give me a flower some day. Of course, I said he could and that I would be so happy to get a flower from him. "Maybe you can ask Auntie Em to help you buy me some flowers," I said. He kindly informed me that he would give me a pink one for my birthday.
Almost instantly, he went on about this birthday. He pointed to each of this fingers and with a matter of fact tone he said, "I would like a trampoline, that dragon boat at Target, that dragon castle at Target, and an instrument." The first three I knew about, but I was a bit surprised to hear him mention on the instrument. I don't know where that came from because he never plays with the instruments he already has. A couple weeks ago, I told him not to jump on the couch. He responded with, "Well, I don't have a trampoline!" That Sunday, he saw a trampoline in one of the ads that was in the Gazette. He made sure to show me the picture and make a comment about wanting that for his birthday. He better not get his hopes up on this trampoline deal. :)
His birthday isn't until the end of April and happens to be right before Easter this year. You'd think this would be an easy party to plan because it's on a Saturday. Well it's the hardest one I've planned (or not started to really plan) yet. Carson insists that only him and I are in-charge of his party. This might get interesting! I just can't believe he's almost 4! :/
