Excitement in the Air!

"I am sooooooo excited that I cannot sleep", Joel came over and hugged me.

It was already 11:23pm.

"Why are you so excited?" I asked curiously.

"Because I am turning into a teenager tomorrow. That only happens once a lifetime", he said beaming.

Its really great to see him being so excited about himself turning into a teenager ... 13. That's a big number. I felt excited for him.

I don't think I have ever been that excited about my own birthday. Of course then, there was nothing to look forward to. I wasn't going to get a party or presents from my parents. Unlike Joel, who is so fortunate because he has been talking about his birthday present for months now. I still don't know what he has decided on.

I hope that he will have a great week because we will probably have a dinner with him during the weekend and then upon his request, have a few friends to go to Midvalley Megamall to some playground. I have not checked out the place, yet. But his friends mentioned that it was fun. So, that would be probably next week. How nice. The birthday celebration is spaced out for a whole week.

The joy of childhood.
