This morning we had the privilege of attending a wonderful birthday breakfast for one of Max's great friends. We were so happy that Blake decided to share his special day with us. I can't believe he is three already, that means Max's third is creeping up on us!
Max was so excited the night before (he loves going to Blake's house) that he had a hard time staying in bed. I kept reminding him that we had to get up real early so he needed a lot of sleep...and if he woke up grouchy he wasn't going to go-that finally did the trick, he forced himself to sleep.
When I went in this morning to wake him up I said, "Good morning. Do you want to get up and get ready to go to Blake's?" He rolled over and through tired, half slit eyes he looked at me and said, "I'm like Wall-E," and he rolled back over with a moan. I asked him what he was talking about, while trying to make sense of what he just said. Then he turns over again and says, "I'm like Wall-E, ugh." As he is saying this he is acting like he can't really get his arms to move...it was just too long (or too short) of a night.
It is at this point I realize what he means and I can't stop laughing. One of his favorite parts in the movie Wall-E is when Wall-E wakes up and is so tired that he can't hardly function and begins to moan and groan until he can get outside to charge his battery.
Only my son would remember this minor detail and use it in his own little world. He really summed it up right though, there are days I feel just like Wall-E too. If you have seen the movie you know what I am talking about-those mornings that come way too soon!
Thank you Megan and Blake for a fun morning! We had a great time, it was all Max talked about the rest of the day.
