Testing, testing

I'm just testing a feature on my blog.  There's nothing to see here.  Move along, move along...

Can you already see the man that he will become?  No mother could feel more pride than I do.  Happy Birthday Damien.  I'm so glad you're mine.

The Balloon Man

Damien introduced us to his balloon friend last Sunday.  He started out by saying, "He doesn't ever go to church."

There was a moment of panic as I thought, "Oh no!  Do I need to use this moment as a teaching opportunity for how we can invite friends to church?  Am I going to have to bring Balloon Man to church?!"  But I saved the day with a "balloon men don't go to church but people do!" conversation.  Genius.

Balloon Man was very fun and ever changing.  He started out with just a hat, moved on quickly to a face and hair, had his face and hair inadvertently transferred to Damien's face and hair (marker does not dry on balloon men apparently), received a good bath, and finally wound up with the hat again.  Balloon Man has continued the trend by transforming into a soccer ball, a pillow, and a diffuser for the flashlight.

Well done, Balloon Man.
