For his birthday he wanted a cake with strawberries and blueberries and a "control car that drives" (remote control car, the past few weeks he has seen another child in the playground who has one and he has been fixated and fascinated and a little awestruck ever since). We took him bowling and to a Jungle Gym where he dared to go down some huge, scary-to-me tube slides, and as he came whizzing out the end he lay still for a second, dazed, before jumping up and shouting "I need to do that again". And as his birthday came to an end exhaustion took over and he was asleep almost before his teeth had finished being brushed.
