Thursday, my little girl turned five. Which means that for the next eight days we will have a 5 year old and a 6 year old... and then Levi turns 7. I don't want to talk about it!
Audrey had a tough time turning five. One day she was excited about her upcoming birthday tea party with friends, and the next day she'd be seemingly sad that she's growing up and telling us she doesn't want to turn five. The funny thing is... I'm the exact same way!!! It's uncanny the resemblances between me and my little mini-me.
* Neither one of us can make a good split second decision. It can sometimes take us a good five minutes to make a desicion that should only take a moment, like, for instance, which candy bar to purchase while in the check out line.
* We both have a hard time being wrong and apologizing when we are. Since I'm an adult now and more mature, it is easier for me to apologize now when I know that I'm wrong... but Audrey is still very much headstrong and hates hates HATES to have to apologize.
* Neither of us is good at censoring before we talk. We both shoot straight from the hip. If we are thinking something... you'll know it!
* Both of us are wildly outgoing... in the comfort of our own home... and shy about meeting new people
Then there's the obvious similarities. She has my upturned nose, she has the same freckles dotting across her nose and cheeks. She's got beautiful golden hair (I was born blond headed), we both have ten fingers and ten toes. I mean... it's bizarre! She's smart as a whip! :)
I love every ounce of this little girl.
Since she was having a hard time turning five, we had a talk with her about how fun five is, and all of the cool things that five year olds get to do, such as: playing soccer, getting a library card, taking the training wheels off of the bike, and... going to Kindergarten.
what in THE world am I going to do next year without this little girl home with me all day??
I don't want to talk about it.
