Like pretty much every 6-year-old boy right now, Mikey is obsessed with Star Wars, and requested a Star Wars theme for his birthday party. We only do “big” parties for 1, 5, 10, but every birthday deserves a celebration. Also – who am I kidding – I absolutely love putting little theme parties together. ?
Mikey asked for a Darth Maul costume. He put it on as soon as we gave it to him, and started acting all tough. Ha.
A few free food labels found on Pinterest, some Dollar Tree decorations, and DIY Jedi robes made him the happiest kid around… and kept things nice and easy for me! #winning

I found an “easy DIY pattern” for jedi robes, which of course, wouldn’t have been easy for me at all. I can’t sew to save my life. But I took the pattern to my aunt, who whipped up a whole bunch of robes with her usual awesomeness. Huge hit with the kids. Lucas offered to model one for you. ?
So many smiles, so much laughter, and another day of memories added to my mama heart.
Mikey, 6 years ago, you made me a mother. In these 6 years, you have taught me more about life and love than I could have ever imagined. You showed me the importance of gentleness, the power of words, the beauty of the every day. Your thoughtfulness makes me think, and your compassion has softened my own heart. You challenge me to see the world in a different light, because that world will one day belong to you. Your strong spirit, your intelligence, your kind heart, and your silly humor add so much to our family, and I am forever grateful to be your mother.
Happy Birthday, son of mine. You are so very, very loved!!
