Cache Money Millionaire


Today my son turns 5. FIVE! My brilliant, little boy! This is such a fun age - I love spending time with him and having little conversations with him...
"Mom? I know what we should do today."
"Ok, what would you like to do?"
"I think we should build Rocket Powered Bat Wings."
"...I see."
He filled out this little chart to take to Preschool - he was so excited to write and draw in all his favorite things.

He loves to read and draw pictures - I absolutely love to see how he interprets images on paper. He loves to draw our family...so cute. He's so good at figuring things out, he works and works at something until he gets it. He also dresses better than I do and he already out-wits me.

Last Summer we went to Costco and Cache saw a Buzz Lightyear costume that he really wanted. We told him that he could use his own money to buy it if he wanted it that badly. Genius plan, Mom and Dad! We drove home, he ran to his piggy bank and enlisted me to help him count the coins. After discarding some random tiny toys and chocolate coins, he had more than enough to pay for his costume. He proudly put all this money ($20.00 in change) in a bag and we drove back to Costco to make his purchase.
The girls at the Check Out were so nice when he handed over his bag and they made a big deal of counting it out and gave him his own little receipt.







He put on his space outfit as soon as we got home and insisted wearing it until dinner. I was so proud of him!

Cache also loves to watch musicals with me and I LOVE that. Some favorites are The Music Man, Phantom of the Opera and Oklahoma. Never fear, he also loves Transformers and Iron Man, so Cody's happy.
Cache took soccer this past year and LOVED it. He didn't need all that gear (shin guards, cleats, etc.), but he looked so cute I couldn't stand it.
Two peas in a pod, these boys. They are inseparable.
Cache with his best friend, Drew!
We have lots of fun things planned today and are excited for his Birthday Party tomorrow! Happy, Happy Birthday to my amazing son! We love you so much - thanks for being such a great kid and great older brother to little Cole. We love having you in our family! Love, Mom and Dad.

It makes me tear up a little reading this because a) he's awesome and b) it's because of you, my best friend, that he is so awesome.

I love him and I love you!
