I could hardly believe when my littlest turned three and then four but five, today, is incomprehensible. I can’t call her a baby anymore, or even a toddler! She will soon be entering kindergarten. I longed for the days the kids would go to school when I had all three in diapers. But now I am trying to force myself to live in and cherish each moment.
This morning in honor of her birthday she chose the breakfast…Trix cereal and ice pops. She squealed happily…
Sugar for breakfast!
(Because anyone who knows me knows that would never be an allowable breakfast on any other day.)
We brought ice cream cone cupcakes into her school today. Have you ever made them? They are always a hit, even when they come out looking totally lame like mine.
So in honor of my 5-year-old I am going to list (just) 5 things I LOVE about her:
- Every morning we hear her let out a big adorable yawn when she awakens.
- She loves “clementimes”.
- When she plays “house” she must be the baby “because I am the baby of my family”.
- She continues to adore bunnies (since she was 6 months old).
- But now she lives and breathes rainbows. (post on this to follow)
She’s my beautiful curly-haired girl…my life wouldn’t be the same without my feisty red-head.
Love you Bean!
