All of last week was about this monumental birthday in our household. Every birthday feels like a momentous one when you're raising small children but 5, 5 felt pretty damn phenomenal.
5 is all about ....
... proving you can touch your ear over your head
... having (the first!) wobbly tooth
... proudly showing your age with a whole handful of fingers
... looking forward to starting 'Great R' (Grade R) and possibly wearing a 'unicorn'!
... learning to tie your own shoe laces
... feeling very grown-up but also,
... needing to be reassured that you're still small enough to be cuddled and babied
... being oh so very lovely and chatty and interested and insightful and thoughtful and considerate and ...
entrancing your parents more and more every day.
Happy birthday my first, my eldest, my extremely special big girl.
