One of my favorite things about being a mom is watching my kids growing up and seeing who they become. My oldest son just turned 8 in April and, to be honest, I still can’t believe it. Every day he reminds me more and more of myself, but he’s everything I never was (and was). He’s funny, popular, and he is so smart. His teachers are always telling me how sweet he is and how he just lights up during math and science class. I guess you can say, I’m one proud mom. But, this year for his eighth birthday, I had such a hard time deciding what to get him.
He’s always been blessed with people who love him and he has almost everything Walmart toy shelves sell. It wasn’t until I thought outside of the box and checked on Amazon, until I really found birthday ideas for 8 years who have it all.
