Wednesday was Mason's 3rd birthday. We had a small, quick, family celebration in the evening after a day full of activities. It wasn't really until Mason walked into the house and saw the balloons, presents and cupcakes that he started to catch on to the whole birthday thing.
He was pretty excited about it all, especially a Lego Ninjago book, which he carried around and took to bed with him.
On Thursday morning, Mason was talking to me about how much he likes his birthday and how happy he was that it was his birthday. I was trying to explain to him that his birthday was over. He didn't like that very much, but seemed to understand.
A few minutes later he and Chase were walking down the hall talking about his Ninjago book. Chase was saying how fun it was that he got the book for his birthday. I was walking a little bit behind them when Mason says,
"Yeah it was fun, but it's not my birthday anymore. Mommy took it away."
