little m five Tweet Today our littlest M is 5. FIVE. How on earth did that happen? As is now traditional in the TOPP house, my baby big girl and I sat down last night for a chat… Me: Hello Little M. Little M: *Looks suspiciously* Um, hi Mum. Me: How old are you today? Little M: Five. Me: No… How old are you today? Little M: Five. Me: Today? Little M: FOUR! Me: Yes, you’re four. How old will you be tomorrow? Little M: Five. Me: What’s been the best thing about being four? Little M: Going to school. Me: Going to school? Do you love school? Little M: Yeah. Me: What’s your favourite thing at school? Little M: Hmmmm… Painting. Me: And what have you learned to do while you’re at school? Little M: Letters. Me: Anything else? Little M: Work. Me: What’s your favourite colour? Little M: Pink. Me: What’s your favourite number? Little M: Ten. Me: Why ten? Little M: Because I just do. Me: Who loves you. Little M: Nathaniel. Me: Nathaniel?!!!! Little M: *Gasps* *Puts hands to mouth* Um yeah. Me: Who’s Nathaniel? Little M: He’s in my class. Me: Is he your boyfriend? Little M: Yeah. And he’s going to marry me. Me: Is he? I did not know that. That’s pretty exciting news. Do you think you should have invited him to your party if you’re going to get married? Little M: *shrugs* Me: Does anyone else love you? Little M: No. Me: What? Nobody else in the whole world? Little M: No. Me: Well who do you love? Little M: You. Me: And do you not think that I might love you? Little M: *nods* Me: And does anybody else love you? Daddy? Big M? Little M: *blinks* Me: So who else do you love? Little M: My cousins E and J. Me: Dad? Little M: Yeah. Me: Big M? Little M: Nope. Me: Of course you do. What’s your favourite food? Little M: Ummmm… potato. Me: Any particular type of potato? Little M: Boiled. Me: Boiled potato is your favourite food in all the world?! What do you love about Daddy? Little M: He’s good at making my birthday cake. Me: You hope… What do you love about Mummy? Little M: *thinks* *thinks some more* You’re nice to me. Me: What do you love about Big M? Little M: She plays with me. Me: And what do you love about you? Little M: Um… Playing with my friends. Me: What are you going to have for your birthday tea? Little M: Green pasta. Maybe with tuna and sweetcorn. Me: And runny grobbles for pudding? Little M: NO! Birthday cake. Me: What kind of cake are you having? Little M: A fire engine. Me: Yum. What do you want to be when you grow up? Little M: A teacher. But a teaching teacher, not a music teacher. Me: Oh. Ok. Are you looking forward to being a grown up? Little M: Yeah. Me: Do you think you could stay little a little bit longer? Little M: No. Me: Oh. Happy of happiest birthdays my little big girl. You’ll always be my baby, no matter how grown up you get. ******** Previously on Little M’s birthday… Four Three share the love May 13, 2015 By tiddlyompompom #birthdays #family #mummying #out of the mouths of babes #where did the time go? 0 comments Previous Post quotes of the week Next Post survival of the ginnest – a review tiddlyompompom Leave a reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Name* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
