This 8 (now 9) year old slept a total of 2 hours last night out of pure excitement.
That, however, is not the only crazy thing about his birthday - his rules are even more wacky:
1. Do not buy him gifts that he has not seen or picked out himself.
2. Do not wrap the gifts you do get him in one packet (they should be individual.)
3. He will eat cake for breakfast (and make his whole family sing to him at 7AM!)
4. He is the boss on this special day (the ONLY boss!)
5. He will stay awake until midnight, because he does not want to miss one second.
6. He is officially older now, so everyone must listen carefully to all his insights on life, the universe and everything...
