It is hard for me to imagine that when I began writing this blog, my baby boy was clad in diapers, barely 16 months old. I’ve gone back through old posts, and am instantly reminded of his antics. He has graciously provided much of the blog fodder over the last almost 5 years, racking focus away from two older sisters who would prefer to not live their lives out loud. Especially now that they can read.
Jensen did indeed turn 6 today. I got up this morning to find him standing in the middle of the family room wearing his Mickey Mouse pajamas, “MOM! AM I REALLY SIX YEARS OLD NOW?” “You are, dude.” Throughout the day, he repeatedly asked if he was still 6. I assured him that he would stay 6, all year long.
It was a magical day for a young boy. He announced to any and everyone he met that HE WAS SIX! But he confided to me that even though he was 6, the Backyardigans were still his most favorite toys.
I’m going to hold fast to this year in my heart.
