Miss O turned 6 yesterday. I don’t know about you but I regard 6 as a milestone birthday. It is up there with 18th, 21st and 40th. I am not really sure why. Perhaps it is because I still remember my own 6th birthday.
Whatever the reason, I think A. A. Milne summed it up beautifully.
Now We Are Six – A.A. Milne
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.
