A mixture of pride, bewilderment, and excitement accompanied this morning’s milestone. Zane lost his first tooth, thanks to a Ghiardelli milk chocolate caramel square. (Yes, sometimes my kids eat candy in the morning, though not regularly!)
First Day of School 2017 – 8th grade and 1st grade
(View previous years HERE)
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.
If only our Zane could be six for ever and ever. Although he is growing up fast, at least he will stay little for a few more years. We celebrated Zane’s sixth birthday yesterday, with great fanfare. He delights in being a prince for the day, and we are happy to pay due deference. Perhaps it is because he is the youngest (and mostly likely last) child, but I just cannot help spoiling him. It might also have something to do with that winsome smile. Happy Birthday sweet boy! We love you!
