Today you turn 6 years old! You’re growing up so fast and I don’t think my heart can take it.
You handled Kindergarten last year like a pro. We knew you would. Your teacher told us what a joy you are to have in class and marveled at how you like to help the other kids to follow directions and you actually help the teacher clean the classroom. As in, wipe down shelves and organize things. You TOTALLY get this from your borderline-OCD Daddy, not from me at all. You love to be given a job – whether it’s to help measure the ingredients for pancakes on Sunday mornings, or to clean up toys. You’re an awesome addition to our family.
You’ve started talking like a “Valley Girl.” I have no idea who taught this to you, but it’s ridiculous. Picture an 80’s Valley Girl movie, that’s how you talk sometimes. What? Again, like I said, you’re pretty hilarious. And goofy.
You love animals and even bugs. You think beetles, spiders, frogs and toads are cute. You’re never afraid to touch a creepy crawly. Last year when we moved to this house with the pond, we had no idea how much you’d love to watch the birds, catch the frogs and enjoy all that comes along with it. You never cease to surprise us, that’s for sure.
