Five


It's a common phrase from a mother's mouth - where has the time gone? But honestly, I don't feel that this year. Perhaps because our first 3 years were so crazy challenging and full. Perhaps because she's old enough to ask 'when am I five?' several times a month. Perhaps because we have slowed down, finding simplicity in our days. Perhaps it's all of the above.

I may not be amazed to have a five year-old, but I still shed the tears of over-flowing love.

Currently, her favourite things are:

Has just started learning Spanish. She's 104cm. Reads for age 8.
She has an imaginary creature called a Boyble (sp?), which looks similar to a cat cross chameleon, with wings. She has managed to get all her little friends to play Boyble games!

"I love life mama"
"Mama, can you explain the world?"

Today was a quiet day with mama and tata, and presents. Tomorrow is her birth celebration Steiner-style in her class, and Saturday is her party with friends. As she just told her cousins over the phone - it's a birthday week!
