Tonight rounded out the last of Hanukkah. I was excited to see if Cooper would get it this year and he did not disappoint!
The first night we lit candles Cooper exclaimed “Happy Birthday, Hanukkah!” I get it. You’ve got candles and presents. Replace the Hanukkah prayer with singing “Happy Birthday” and you’re there!
He got to spend night 4 with his cousins. I’ve never seen three kids open presents faster. And then they only wanted to play with each others' toys. Go figure.
On the 6th night, I was working late and Kyle was trying to do his best to hold him off from opening presents until I got home. Cooper told him, “Daddy, I have an idea. I’ll get the candles. You wite them. Then, we’ll do Hanukkah!” I swear, that boy came out sneaky!
Tonight was something else though. A couple of months ago I accidentally ran over his "woo hoop" (hula hoop) that was left in the driveway. I thought it would be a great idea to get him a new one. Apparently, it was the WRONG COLOR! First world problem if I've ever seen one! The office toy drive just got a new donation tonight!
To top it off, poor boy has to wait a whole 21 days to celebrate Christmas with me. And then a whole month until his birthday. Rough life, kid.
