Guess who is six years old today? Yes, it is our third born grandchild......who came bounding into our lives on that sunny Friday the thirteenth in 2011. It really doesn't seem that six years have already gone by.
Sweetheart weighs 49 pounds and is 46 inches tall. She fits Size 6X/7 in clothing and measures a Size 2 shoe. She is almost finished kindergarten and when asked by her teacher what she does best, she told him "Sleeping, science and reading." She has really enjoyed her first year at school and that doesn't surprise any of us, because she loves to learn. And she really is a very good sleeper too!
She also loves to play. She especially loves Shopkins and Lego, but this a girl who will look at books forever too. She is starting to put letters and words together and is learning how to read.
I am a wife, a mother, a friend. I own and operate my own family business, a licensed daycare in my home. I often say that I don't really work, which I don't, I play. Rod Black once said that if you choose a career you love, then you never have to work a day in your life. I know that I have done that. Children fascinate me, they have very intriguing behaviours and although I often think I need to evolve past the age of 5, I keep coming back to take care of all the little children. They are the lights of my life, and they help to make my life complete.
