For some reason, Five is a really big number. It’s scary. It’s the number before needing more than just a hand to count.
In nine weeks, Alex will be turning five. Five. That’s kid-aged! That’s Kindergarten aged! That’s…five and it’s so big.
He is certainly showing his increasing age with a level of maturity that we haven’t seen before. His understanding of the world around him keeps broadening, his independence keeps blooming.
I just can’t believe that by the time fall rolls around I’ll be able to say I’m the mom of a five year old.
