Also, how do I have kids that are 5?!
I actually want to spend all my free time with them (except for the sacred rest time on the weekend) because they're clever and spunky and full of interesting questions. They're affirming and lovable, and I feel like I get as much love back as I give which is just wonderful.
I get told how I cook DELICIOUS meals (for really simple things) and that I make the best pancakes (okay, I do!) and the nicest pasta, etc.
They come back for more hugs and kisses and "I love you so, SO much" even in front of the other kids at school. I don't see other mothers getting as much love as I do ;) probably because I'm too busy hugging and kissing back.
(if we could just get them listening on a consistent basis, life would be completely rosy :))
I still haven't finished reading Your Five-Year-Old: Sunny and Serene - matter of fact, I'm only about 10% through. But I'm sure the book says what I'm experiencing.
Anyway, enough chit-chat - you want to see more photos of their "photo day" at school?
Here we go!
|I told them to do their serious model faces :)|
|then they get silly again!|
What are your favourite things about 5?
Which is your favourite age?
D says 18 - 21 months; I said "anything after that first year" (and I'm not even joking!)
PS I'm 3 months into this year and I have 4 - 5 things done (out of 24) on my Lovely Things list.
