Colin after throwing the magic rocks” DAD! My dreams do really come true!”

We have a five year old?! Fabulous fun with his friends, goldfish, cotton candy, caramel apples and games. As a parent you have this annoying ability to pull out every cliché known to man, I’m no exception, here are a string of clichés I said about 100 times that day… here I go, He grew like a weed, Time flies, He looks like a spitting image of his daddy, We love you more than the whole world…
