Being five

Please, everybody, look at me!
Today I'm five years old, you see!
And after this, I won't be four,
Not ever, ever, any more!
I won't be three-or two-or one,
For that was when I'd first begun.
Now I'll be five a while, and then
I'll soon be something else again!

~Mary Louise Allen

The Little Miss woke up a year older today.  Her smile was like a little ray of sunshine as she walked into the kitchen.  We had dutchboy pancakes for breakfast, opened a few gifts from family and made cupcakes for her friends.  Little buddies came to play, eat and sing.  Three baby chicks made there way into the house to oooh & ahhh over.  There was a minimum of pouting, and a lot of smiling.  We went out to dinner for the birthdays girl's mac'n cheese and finished the day off with a movie. 

Being five is good.  Really good.
