A Day In The Life Of A 5 Year-Old
Well, I still cannot believe that my son is already five and a half. That time flew. I was just looking at pictures of him as a baby. And boy, do I want to give him a sibling so bad, but that's for another blog post entirely. My son makes me laugh, he makes me furious, he makes me happy, he makes me sad. But I wouldn't trade anything for the world. He is my gift. But boy once they hit a certain age, do they get feisty. I'm already getting "Well, that's how it's going to be mom," and door-slamming. Do I actually have a teenager in a tiny body? But anyway, I thought it would be fun to detail the day of a five year-old with what else...GIFS!

But then it's all like:
So You Offer To Color (Or Play)
Five Minutes Later:
Okay, Would You Like To Watch TV (For A Bit)?
It Amuses Him For Awhile While Dinner Is Prepped (My Reaction):

Dinner Is Ready And He Says:
So We Standoff:
|For reference, no I do not shove food down my child's throat.|
He Ends Up Winning (Sometimes) And Gets Something Else:
A few hours go by, and then it is snacktime. So, I ask, ever so sweetly:
What Do You Want For A Snack?:
|You know I had to throw a Dr. Who gif in here!|
So, I Say, How About This?:
Eventually, he finally decides on gummies. Even though I offered them five times before that.
He's allowed a little more television time before bedtime. So he watches his brand new favorite show. *shudders*
|You know about his new movie on Netflix, right? March 18th, set your calendars, folks!|
The Fight Begins When I Say It's Bedtime:
Time For Pajamas
Alright Tuck-In Time:
We Say Our Goodnights (Finally) And He's In Bed:
Then He Yells From The Other Room:
So, I get up, and finally get him the water. He wants his radio on, so I do that too.
One more kiss and hug and another goodnight.
I check on him five minutes later and I see this:
