And Then You Were Five

I’m not sure I even remember anything about the day this picture was taken, Blondie.  I was scared.  Your dad was scared (I’ve got the pictures to prove it).  We weren’t sure we would be good enough.  But, then you were born – and all was right with the world.

Then, I’m not sure what happened, but you asked to go to pre-school and learned how to use the toilet, and suddenly…suddenly you were two.

And, we kept chugging along.  You got a new sister, and you kept growing and doing well in school.  Learning…always learning.  Then – BAM!! – you were four.

Why?  Why have you gone and made yourself five?  It’s to spite me, isn’t it?

AndNowThatYoureFive

Well, you have it your way, Miss Thang.  You continue to grow.  I hope I still have a thing or two to teach you, because (without question) each day you teach me something about both of us.

I hope you know I love you.
