The boy, who did not prefer others to sing the birthday song for him lately, quietly celebrated being seven last evening. With Khalish, Kamal, and I were Lisa and Joey. No photo though as I decided to leave my camera behind. All because of the birthday boy's request: for him to be with his daddy and half siblings as I choose for him a Lego set (which required a meticulous quest at Toys "R" Us and Box of Bricks). To compensate for yesterday's zero photo from my camera, here are ones of The Camus Clan during our previous outing together :)
Alhamdulillah for each moment. Most importantly, Khalish loved the togetherness on his birthday. He even prepared a gift for his sister, who will turn 18 at the end of the month. Upon waking up this morning, he said, "I want the same celebration again next year, mommy. Another surprise gift, beautifully wrapped, with daddy, mommy, Lisa, and Joey around. Then, a party with my cousins." "No birthday song!" He quickly added.
