It was so nice to see him so excited and happy as the last couple of years have been harder on him than any of the boys. It was a freezing cold morning (just as we thought spring had his Tassie, the frosty mornings returned) so we all jumped into my bed while he opened up presents.
He loved all his presents which all had a gaming theme. I have no idea about gaming, so he gave me a 'wish list' which saved me. Lots of parcels had been arriving from the USA over the past couple of weeks.
I found an awesome card for him. He thought it was hilarious.
Nicole, The Cupcake Fairy not only spoilt Jay with a cake and present, but gave each of us a little pressie. The boys loved that they came in Hawthorn bags.
Even though he had such a nice day yesterday, he is feeling really sad and down today. He said he has felt really 'depressed' all day today and I told him that it was probably because he had something to look forward to with his birthday coming up, and now it's over and reality has set back in again. I also told him that some days are just sadder than others and it's okay to have those days too because we can't have really happy days every day. I just hope that the really sad days continue to get further apart. I'm glad that he was able to have a break from the sadness even just for a day.
