Now We are Six (1927)
By 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.
The best part of a child's life is the birthday! It is a special day just for them that makes them feel like royalty. I love making a big deal about my children's birthdays. It is my little way of saying thanks to Heavenly Father for the most precious gift he could give just to me...my child.
This year Sam asked for a Transformer birthday cake so here is what I came up with. We used fondant for the transformer part and then peanut butter M&M's for the dots. He was very satisfied. We had a big pool party with lots of cousins and family and a few friends from church and school. Sam felt like a king. I was too busy putting on a party to take photos, but hopefully I'll get some from Aunt Jen soon.
