Dev's Bithday Scooter....OH BOY!!!

>> Thursday, January 8, 2009

Yesterday was my little Dev's birthday. He turned six years old. He was very excited for the last couple of months on the approach of his birthday. When we picked the boys up from school, we had a few errands that we need to run since my husband is back in school. We allow the boys to share each others birthdays to avoid any conflict with behavior. They felt they were in desperate need in to going home instead of taking some (long) time in town to get everything done. The entire time, they were complaining and whimpering. They knew they had presents at home, and they just couldn't control themselves to be at least quiet until time to go home. Kids will be kids, but these two just couldn't keep it together. So Devin finally got to come home and played hide and seek to find his present that was hidden behind his bedroom door. He pulls it out, and was totally amazed. He had seen kids playing on them before, and here it was...his turn now. He went around and around for about 4 hours. Face was beet red and he was breaking a sweet. However, you could not pry that scooter away from him for anything without him going into a major overdrive of anger. It was so exhausted from it all. He became violent and I tried to coax him to bed. Ed had already gone to bed once I was still trying to get pj's on Dev. Of course, Dev had chocolate cake which I know is a big no no. That also aided in the complete breakdown and obsession over the scooter. It wasn't over when he finally went to sleep. He was dreaming about it. You could hear him talking about that scooter. When morning came, where did he go after his guessed it. That scooter again. HAHAHAHA he has gotten really good at it, but is sensitive to playing it indoors since talking and noises made it hard for him to concentrate on riding. Hope you enjoyed this little story.
