Five half decades later…
Yesterday was my son’s birthday. Video Boy is fifteen (15) years old! FIFTEEN YEARS! How can I be the mother of a fifteen year old?
|Is this fifteen years ago?|
How did we celebrate this momentous occasion?
With New York style pizza in the centre of Canberra:
We decided if it was too cold to watch ice-skating, it was too cold to Segway, so we went to JB Hifi and bought Mario Kart 8 as a birthday present and retreated home and raced each other. I generally came last, except for one memorable race where I swear the Wii U felt sorry for me and I came first!!!
I also made nachos and he did get other presents! And he has relative presents on the way too.
His friends from the south coast are staying with us for a few days and over-dosing on computer games, video games, board games and a trip to the movies, which is nice for them.
As I stood in the queue at the movies today, I noticed he was nearly as tall as this giant of a man also in queue. My baby is growing up and as the dude from EB Games reminded me, he can start to learn to drive next year (lalalalalalala).
Happy birthday Video Boy!
