Today is my second son’s sixth birthday. I cannot believe he is already six. Where did the first five years go so quickly? He is such a little boy, and now able to do so many responsible things too!
In honour of his birthday, I thought it would be fun to list my favourite things about him, as a now six-year-old young man.
He is a helpful big brother.
He loves to colour and does it well.
He is particular about his clothes and always dresses spiffy.
He loves his cowboy boots.
He loves to swing.
He can swing himself. – and almost touch the branch on the tree above the playset!
He is old enough now to help with the barn chores each morning.
He is in charge of running leftovers out to feed the ducks and chickens.
He loves the new baby goat kids.
He loves orange juice.
He can fold his own clothes.
He can put his own sheets on his twin bed.
He, like the rest of us, loves popsicles!
He doesn’t mind getting things for his mom with an ever-growing belly!
He is content to play alone.
He plays in a scientific way, learning at whatever he does.
He is getting good with a hammer and loves to help me with projects!
He makes it a point to say good night to each family member before he goes to bed.
He makes it a point to come and sit on my lap and tell me good night and gives me a peck on the cheek.
I am so thrilled to watch you grow up, my sweet little man, but sad to see your baby-ness slowly going. Happy birthday to my sweet six-year-old young man!! Momma loves you!
