was allowed to turn into a 6 year old, seemingly overnight?
She is so creative and smart as a whip. She has a razor sharp memory for things like phonograms and poem recitation. She has a knack for numbers and an eye for creative design. She is a good eater and tries new foods constantly. She pushed us to let her try out Karate and to sign her up for weekly classes. We are so proud of her initiative and doing something out of her comfort zone. She is a good friend and always nice to others.When the mood strikes her, she is a good helper and listener. She loves music and dancing. I wish I had photos from the other day. We went to the bowling alley and they were playing fun dance music loudly. After every bowl, she would stop and just shake it or raise the roof. I couldn't stop laughing--it was pure joy to see her having so much fun.
"Sometimes" we butt heads. She pushes, I push back. We argue. She wants to do things her way and on her timetable. So, it always amazes me to hear that she wants to be like me. She has been leaving me little notes and cards that say, "I love you Mommy. You are the best Mommy ever." Sigh.
And yet, she will always be Daddy's little girl.
They have the same sense of humor, sarcasm and competitive spirit. They have so many similar likes and dislikes--too many to list.
All in all, six has gone by fast, way too fast. I certainly hope the next six years will go a bit more slowly, although I highly doubt it. We love you Little Miss. Happy 6th Birthday :)
