Reece turned 9 on Saturday. It’s hard to believe it’s been 9 years since I started all over again with a new baby. My older kids were 14 and 9 at the time, and now Reece is 9. I remember how huge that 9 year gap seemed then, both in terms of space between children, and the distance I had travelled from the new mom stage of life. And now that amount of time has passed again. Wow.
We spent his
birthday at a theatre fundraiser and award ceremony, where he won an award for his
performance as Young Moses in Promised Land.
Then Sunday evening, we went to Benihana for dinner – one of our favorite spots to celebrate with good teppan food, onion volcanos, Japanese soda pop, and green tea ice cream. Plus a couple of cousins...no birthday celebration would be complete without those!
