Happy 10th Birthday E!!

E is 10 years old today! How am I old enough to have a 10 year old?! Hah, I'm 40, math checks out, no surprise really.  E is such a nice boy and I know he is my son so I'm biased, but he really is.  He is happy, easy going, polite, and kind to his friends and brother. He does drag his feet to do some things, but he actually has fun wherever he goes and is rarely in a bad mood.  I know we could do a better job at putting him into more activities, but he is also just happy to play Legos and watch Netflix at home.  He also has several video games that he plays, but none of them obsessively.  

E likes to be silly and make people laugh.  We do get frustrated with him because he takes forever to tell a story and also needs to be told to do something several times, but he really is a good kid and I remind myself of that often.  He is creative and thoughtful about many things. I am proud of how he has been walking to and from school each day without complaint and I like that he is getting some more independence to find friends to walk home with or hang out after school. I trust him to make good choices.  

And the annual birthday quiz.  E asked me why I do this every year and I told him I find it interesting to look back each year to track their favourite things. So here we go (and many of his answers haven't changed, he is consistent):
