This little guy is FIVE?!?! Oh he makes me want to pull my hair out laugh every day!  He is pushing my buttons testing limits and I have to use every ounce of self control to NOT get into an arguing match with him making me a better parent.  Five is a fun age!  My patience is drained at the end of each day.  There! I said it!  Parenting a five year old [along with a 6 and 2 yo] is HARD!  That being said, I love my little family, and wouldn't change a thing!

I don't want you to have to read between the lines. You are a TOUGH COOKIE MARCELO!  But man oh man you are soooooooooooooooo cute.  You are super sweet too.

"Mami, I have to tell you a secret. [I lean in] You're beautiful!"

Although you try to use this compliment thinking it will erase any misbehavior, you also randomly say it and I just LOVE it so much!  On the other hand, sometimes you tell me "Im never telling you 'you're beautiful' ever again!"  LOL
Luckily, by the end of the day, I am always back to beautiful.
We were in San Diego last year for his birthday and threw together a beach party...which was AWESOME!

Again, we are in San Diego, but this year, we wanted to try something different.
We did repeat presents though. You loved your VANS, so we got you another pair...
You also got your first REAL tool set.  You love fiddling with papa's tools and have misplaced a few too many, so we thought this would be a great gift.  I can't wait to see what you will fix/build with it.

The real treat was surprising you when we pulled into Aquatica, Seaworld's waterpark.  Screams of excitement filled the car once they saw the huge water slides, and we knew we had made a good choice.

The ENORMOUS wave pool was a big hit as well, and also our home base. The park isn't that big, so hitting a few slides and then popping back to the wave pool was super easy.  We pretty much stayed together all day.

All 13 of us (only missing a couple cousins) had a blast and it was pure joy to see my little birthday boy so happy.  He sure loves a thrill ride, that is for sure.

He also love TAKIS [spicy rolled chips] which is why I added 5 of them to his birthday cake. LOL
He got a kick out of that. Something about San Diego and TAKIS go hand in hand.  Probably because their cousins introduced them last year, but we are going to keep them as "the San Diego Treat" (sung like the commercial).
The kids were ready for bed early that night.  In fact, Mateo was sleeping during the cake eating/birthday singing (despite Ernesto trying to wake him).
Happy birthday my little Celli-cell. I hope you had a great day.  We love you so much!!!
