Hubby turned a year
My little boy, HQ :-D.
He knew it was his Papa's birthday on that Sunday, and so on Friday morning, he woke up bright and early at 5.30am on his own! Yes, he can wake up very early if he sets his mind to. We were all still sleeping then.
We always have a reading (yellow) light on throughout the night, right above my sewing table. It has proven to be very useful when our kids want to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night (HQ goes on his own).
So, at 5.30am, unknown to everyone, HQ sat there on my sewing table, and drew a birthday card for his Papa :'). He even took a used envelope and slid his card inside. When he was done, he left the envelope on his Papa's work table. (Yes, besides 1 Queen sized bed and 2 single beds, we have 2 tables and a host of other things in our room).
And he went back to sleep :-).
Well, when hubs and I woke up, as usual we rushed with our usual stuffs getting ready for work. Hubby didn't even notice the envelope that HQ placed on his table.
How do we know about all this? HQ woke up later at 7.30am and he told us all what he did at 5.30 am. We were surprised! But we knew that's the only time he could have done it because nobody saw him drawing/ holding any card at any other time.
When HQ took the envelope and presented to hubby, I could see that hubby was very touched :'). Here's father and son, reading the card. HQ (still in pajamas) looked pretty pleased too :-).
HQ's birthday card to hubby: it's a picture of Papa holding a balloon and a kite under a rainbow, a sunny sun, and flying birds. Papa in the picture was on a grassy land, next to a river with fishes swimming by. That's a little bug on the grass. Overleaf are stars for his Papa. I love the message :-D.
The envelope:I'm sure this card totally made hubby's day :-D.
