Here Fishy Fishy...

Oh Dear Dylan,

My crazy, wild, hilarious son. What would I do without you?!
And how in the world are you about to be FOUR years old.
Just seems so impossible.

I am about to be a mother of a SIX and FOUR year old. 
Where in the heck does the time go? Fo real.

I have asked you many times what you want for your birthday.
Here is your response:

1. Black Cat
2. Dog
3. BB Gun of my own like Drew's
4. Bow and Arrow of my own like Drew's.

When I tell you none of those are going to happen and name something else you simply say:

"That's it. That is all that I want."

Son, I am afraid that you just might become disappointed on your birthday. Negative to another cat. We have one spazzo cat already. Big fat negative to a dog. We tried that. Never again. One BB gun is enough for this household. And well, you just aren't getting another bow and arrow.

So...what are we going to get your little fishing obsessed self?


See, I am the type of Mom who does not just leave presents for Birthdays and Christmases. I get my kids things all the time and then when these important times come I can not think of a thing to get them because they have EVERYTHING!!!

So...I thought about getting him his own little aquarium of fish for his bedroom. However, we do have a spazzo cat and I am scared I might walk into his room one day with Nemo hanging out of Duke's mouth.

Then I thought a tee-pee. He LOVES these types of things and is always wanting to get our blow up jungle gym thingy out. However, there is just not enough room in our house.

I seriously am at a loss. I cannot think of anything.

So, as I rattle my brain for ideas on presents, I am also rattling my brain for ideas on his birthday party. 

Yes. I am having a party.
 I said I was not going to do it, but when I told him that, the response was the saddest little pitiful face I had ever seen. He wants his birthday party at Grandpa Bruce's, so I'm sucking it up and planning another party. FISH FRY style.

So dear child, give me some more ideas for presents!!!

Normal, realistic things...
But again, normal is something you are definitely not and that my son is why I am obsessed with YOU!
