Happy birthday, Caveman!

I can't believe my baby boy is five years old.

For his birthday, we all went to see "Monsters vs. Aliens". He got underwear, shoes, and bedsheets for his presents. If you don't know the story behind that, he asked for a skateboard for his birthday, but a few weeks before, I found that he had ripped holes in his bedsheets using a screwdriver. Yeah. His tearing up things has been a big problem for us, and I'm ready to put a stop to it. I told him that with the money that I would have used for a skateboard, I was going to have to buy him new sheets instead.
I know some folks thought that was just too harsh of a punishment. I don't see it as a punishment, I see it as logical consequences. And I'm not a totally mean mama. I did get him Batman sheets (and Batman/Spiderman/Hulk underwear and Spiderman shoes). As you can see in the picture, he's not permanently scarred.
