Little Man turns 5
"Being 5 doesn't feel any different than being 4. Why don't I feel different?" These are the words that Little Man confessed to me this afternoon. He might not feel any different being 5 but I am having a hard time believing that my first born is already 5 years old. I see the differences every day. I can distinctly remember his first 12 hours. I remember unwrapping his swaddling blanket and pouring over every inch of him. I studied his perfect little fingers and toes. When he was sleeping with me every night and I was exhausted I used to say "When he is 5, he won't be sleeping in my bed anymore so I should just enjoy this time" and when he I was potty training him I just told myself, he won't be in diapers when he is 5. Now my baby boy is 5 and he is reading and going to kindergarten orientations and becoming an independent sweet soul. I am not sure I am ready for all of this but he is ready. He is very ready to be 5!
