Six


"Now We Are Six" by A.A. Milne (1927)
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.


Happy Sixth Birthday to my All Saints' Day baby, my future artist-ballerina-pilot-actress-singer-comedian-science teacher-accordion player-horsewoman.  (I'm probably leaving something out...)

  5. Happy bday to your "clever as clever" 6-year-old! I remember counting down the days until my oldest was six so I could present him with this book. (but he didn't stay six "for ever and ever" - now he's 29!) :)

    1. Thank you, Wendy! My husband and I were just saying to each other, wasn't her sister just six? Didn't we just have a 6-year-old in the house? Trying to cherish these ages, before mine are grown, too! xoxo

    1. You should see the face she made for this year's school picture. It's the deepest, most miserable frown the world has ever seen. I'm hoping she can get in for retakes this week. Eek! :)
