Yesterday, the Boy turned nine.
The real party will be on Saturday. We did a low-key celebration yesterday, which consisted of a day full of nag-free video games and a trip to Ruffino's, which is where he wanted to eat a birthday dinner. And, yes, because it was his birthday, he could take his Kindle into the restaurant. Otherwise, it's verbotten.
'Twas just the Boy and I, too, because the Tween had a swim meet. We talked about the things important to a nine-year old, which included Minecraft, Bill Cosby, and explosions. Good times.
