My little girl is five
My oldest daughter turned five a couple days ago. It's just amazing to me how time flies. Tomorrow she's having a bowling birthday party with her friends. Bowling? Since when do I have a child old enough to bowl? In a few short months we'll be packing her lunch and bringing her to kindergarten for the first time (though she doesn't understand why she can't start today). I know this sounds funny but kindergarten is the big leagues to me! School five days a week, older children on campus with her...wow...I'm still in a little bit of shock. Just yesterday she was learning to say mama and teetering around while trying to learn to walk. Now she's a five year old who tells me she wishes she were sixteen!
She's so funny. Such a strong personality. A little bit diva but also very sensitive with a kind heart. She loves books just like her mommy and wants to write someday (actually she wants to write now). She rocks out with me in the car while we're driving and listening to music and loves taking care of her little sister.
I'm SO very lucky to have her for my daughter.
