Today we celebrated Isaiah’s ninth birthday. He is our mischievous one; I joke with Jacinta about starting a bank account for Isaiah to save up for bail money. This meant he was the perfect kid for the tricksy, self-relighting birthday candles!
He actually had them all out at one moment, so even though they re-lit a moment later we gave him credit for blowing out his candles. He thought the trick candles were a lot of fun and very funny, and gave us that unique Isaiah-chortle.
Incidentally, you can see that the cake is shaped like the letter I. “That’s for ‘Ichabod,'” I explained to him. [Chortle!]
