In 2 short months, my one and only child is turning 5 years old.
I don’t even know what to do with that.
When she was 2, we started trying to grow our family +1, hoping that we’d at least be able to promote her to “big sister” status by the time she was 4. Now she’s turning 5, and we’re about to turn the corner on 3 years of waiting. I just can’t wrap my brain around that. It took 1 year to conceive her, and now 3 years to conceive… well, nothing.
I still don’t know what to do or where to go with this… but I have mapped out our budget and savings plan for Disney in October, so I’m just trying to focus on that right now. Oh, and planning her birthday party.
Did I share previously that she was insisting on a Dinosaurs and Rainbows party? Well, she has since changed her mind. She talked for 9 months about this dino party, and then Christmas happened… so now we’re having a FROZEN party. I had an epiphany the other day and realized that a FROZEN party would be best held at an ice skating rink… there is one downtown and they are really inexpensive for parties! Way cheaper than all of the other places I found, and they allow you to bring in outside food and drink.
Of course, she has no idea that we’re looking at an ice skating rink for the party location. I think we’ll save that little detail for later. 😉
Zoey is turning 5. My little peach, my princess, my pipsqueek is about to fill a hand with her age. I just can’t believe it. Where did the time go? She’s sweet, she’s sassy, she pushes my limits and yet is quick to apologize when she knows she has been difficult. She challenges me so much as a mother. I’m so thankful that I have been entrusted by God to care for her, to mother her here on earth.
I can’t believe it…
She’s turning 5.
