So August was a busy month; in between preparing for Summer to be over and the kids to return to school, we had the boys birthdays. My son Aj turned 8 and my other son K-man turned 6. It seems like my kids are growing way too quickly, soon enough my daughter will be 12 and she is already 3″ shorter than I am. Sigh.

Kids growing too quickly

The boys spend their actual birthday with their Dad, this allows each of our sons to have one day a year alone with their Daddy. So on K-man’s birthday I had the day with Aj while K-man spent it with his Dad and vice versa. We had a blast on those days, it’s nice to balance things out best we can through out the year!

Celebrating Birthdays

We had a great time for each boy on their birthday night … on the boys actual birthday they get a present, cake and balloon. Ki, my daughter, made Aj & K-man’s cake and both girls Chey & Ki worked together for the cakes on the actual birthday party day! We celebrated a birthday party on the Saturday following K-man’s birthday with family and friends.


We had a fabulous month of August between the birthday celebrations and ending up Summer Break with some trips and swimming. Sadly, the last week of Summer was feeling a bit like Fall, and yet now as School is in session we are sweating to death with humidity and heat. Sigh.

So now I am the Mom of two boys are 6 and 8 …. my “baby” is no longer a baby boy anymore … he is now getting older and he doesn’t much like to be called a ‘baby’ anymore either. I am happy to have spent our month of August having family fun and celebrating my aging sons!

    Happy birthday to both of your sons! I feel your pain on the growing up. My nephew is 13, and everyday it seems like he’s gotten taller, more broad shouldered, and his voice has dropped a little more. I HATE it!
