Now We Are Six
When I was One,
I had just begun.
When I was Two,
I was nearly new.
When I was Three
I was hardly Me.
When I was Four,
I was not much more.
When I was Five,
I was just alive.
But now I am Six, I’m as clever as clever.
So I think I’ll be six now for ever and ever.
~ A. A. Milne
Both of my daughters were excited for their birthday today, but one was especially thrilled.
“I can’t wait for my birthday!” she squealed with glee last night as we tucked her in bed.
Sure enough. She came to our room at 2 a.m., 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. to ask, “Is it my birthday yet?”
Then, at just after 6 a.m., she came running to say, “It’s the 29th! It’s my birthday!”
So … happy birthday, Sweetie. Happy birthday to your lovely sister too.
