Today my biggest M is 7.


I’m not even sure how that is possible.

But, apparently it is, so as is our tradition, last night we had a little chat.


Me: Evening Big M.

Big M: Hi mum,

Me: So, how old are you today?

Big M: Six.

Me: And how old will you be tomorrow?

Big M: Seven.

Me: SEVEN?! How is that possible… Ok, what has been the best thing about being six?

Big M: Um…ummmm…ummm I don’t really know.

Me: Well, just think of all the things you’ve done since your last birthday. What was the best thing?

Big M: I think being in year 2 and getting grown up.

Me: That’s cool. What’s your favourite colour?

Big M: Pink.

Me: And what’s your favourite number?

Big M: Eight.

Me: Oooh, so you’re getting closer then! What’s your favourite thing to do at school?

Big M: Umm… I think Topic.

Me: What’s your topic at the moment?

Big M: Well we were doing Islands but we’re changing it.

Me: So what will your new topic be. do you know?

Big M: No. I think it’s Living Things.

Me: Sounds interesting. What did you learn about islands?

Big M: Ummmm….Nothing.

Me: Oh. Who loves you?

Big M: You.

Me: Anyone else?

Big M: Daddy. And Little M.

Me: Anyone else?

Big M: Granny. Grandpa. All  my family.

Me: They do. And probably some other people too. And who do you love?

Big M: You and Daddy and Little M. And Granny and Great Gran and Granny Mum. Grandpa, Grandpa. And my family.

Me: That’s lovely. What’s your favourite food?

Big M: Um, I don’t really have a favourite food. I like all the foods.

Me: *chokes* nnnnyeah. What are you having for your birthday tea then?

Big M: Meatballs and sauce and mashed potato and sweetcorn.

Me: Yup, that’s what you ordered. Nice. What’s the best thing about Daddy?

Big M: He’s funny.

Me: What about me?

Big M: You’re friendly.

Me: And what’s the best thing about Little M?

Big M: She is KER-AY-ZEE.

Me: Ha! Yes she is. What’s the best thing about you?


Me: That’s true. You are awesome.

Big M: *laughs*

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

Big M: Well, I’ve been thinking maybe a teacher or a pilot.

Me: Interesting. Why a pilot?

Big M: Because I really like flying and I’d like to do it more often.

Me: Well, maybe we will. What do you want to do when you are seven?

Big M: Go on more adventures.


That’s it my girl, aim high. Happiest of happy birthdays Big M.
