Why do my kids have to grow up? "Pear" turned 7 on December 20th! He is my Christmas baby! Poor guy got the flu the night before his birthday. Luckily it was only a 24 hour bug and he was feeling much better by the next day. We made homemade pizza and instead of a cake he decided he wanted to have ice cream cones. I feel kind of bad that I didn't make him a cake, but he was happy with his ice cream!
