now we are six

Today my biggest M is six. I’m not entirely sure how that happened. I’m pretty certain she was a teeny tiny baby and then I blinked.

Anyhoo, last night we had a little chat.

Me: Hello Big M. How old are you today?

Big M: Five.

Me: And how old will you be tomorrow?

Big M: SIX!!!!

Me: I know! Six is HUGE!! What have you done today that’s special?

Big M: Had my party.

Me: And what did you do?

Big M: Painted some animals.

Me: And have you got your animal?

Big M: No.

Me: Why not?

Big M: Because they have to go away to be cooked in a really hot oven.

Me: So they’re not real animals then.

Big M: No…

Me: Good. That would be bad.

Big M: *snort* yeah.

Me: What is your favourite food?

Big M: Ummm…. Ummmmmm… Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…Cheese.

Me: Just cheese?

Big M: Cheese and mayonnaise and ham sandwiches.

Me: And what’s your favourite toy?

Big M: *waves her brand new barbie that she’s had for all of two hours* This.

Me: What is your favourite thing to do at school?

Big M: Ummm…Do different light sources.

Me: Light sources?

Big M: Yeah. Sorting them out. Normal light sources, ones that make them, and man made ones.

Me: So you like science then?

Big M: Yeah.

Me: Do you have a favourite song?

Big M: *sings* Whose socks are these?

Me: Huh?

Big M: Mr R sings it.

Me: Oh, that explains it. I don’t know that one. So tell me, what’s been the best thing about being five?

Big M: Ummmm…Five adds up to make ten?

Me: But lots of numbers add up to make ten. What’s been the best thing that’s happened to you while you were five?

Big M: Having my party.

Me: That’s been the most exciting thing all year?

Big M: Yeah.

Me: Fair dos. What are you looking forward to doing when you’re six?

Big M: Painting!

Me: Who do you love?

Big M: You!

Me: Awww. Anyone else?

Big M: Daddy and Little M. And E. And J. And S. And E. And The Bump (all her cousins)

Me: And who loves you?

Big M: You. And Daddy. And Little M. And E and J.

Me: And lots of other people probably love you too. What about Granny or Grandpa?

Big M: Yeah, they love me too.

Me: What do you want to be when you grow up?

Big M: Mummy.

Me: A mummy?

Big M: No! A fairy. A rainbow magic fairy.

Me: And which fairy would you be?

Big M: Sophie the Sapphire Fairy. Because that’s my house colour.
