Happy 6th Birthday
When I was One,
I had just begun.
When I was Two,
I was nearly new.
When I was Three
I was hardly me.
When I was Four,
I was not much more.
When I was Five, I was just alive.
But now I am Six, I'm as clever as clever,
So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever.
A. A. Milne
Oh, sweet child you are six today. You asked me if I was sad that you would no longer be five. Of course I will miss the little girl who went to school for the first time, learned to tie her own shoes, lost her first tooth and grew in so many wonderful ways. But I'm looking forward to Little Miss Six.
What will you learn and do this year? Will we take the stabilisers off your bike? Will you write the great american novel? Paint a masterpiece? Invent an invention? What new and amazing things will you do this year?
And you do amaze me every single day. So goodbye my sweet little five year old and happy birthday my Little Miss Six. I can't wait for the adventures you will take me on.
