Being the only child for so long has great benefits. Like getting to celebrate your Webkinz birthday. Your mom actually making cup cakes and everybody singing happy birthday. Oh and having your dad help you make him a dog house. Yes we did all that for Carson. I guess it comes naturally to me because I was pretty much an only child, being the baby of the family, and my parents especially my mother went out of her way to do things like that for me. Anyway a funny story. I asked Paul to start making the cup cakes and I come into the kitchen right when he is turning on the blender and the batter goes flying everywhere. He hadn't melted the butter before he put it in. I was laughing because I just didn't know what to say. Luckily the cupcakes turned out good.
Another benefit of being the only child is that your dad goes out of his way not to miss one practice of any kind for you and he stands on the sidelines during all of practice and the games, encouraging you and giving you advice. Carson just got done with flag football. He really liked it but he's a little timid when kids start running at him. But he's got the hang of if for next year. Right now he's doing swim on saturdays and in a week he'll start Soccer.
