Our Millie turned FIVE YEARS OLD yesterday. Precious little curly-haired girl! She wanted to have her birthday party at Build-A-Bear. We have many "bears" left over from our own kids, but somehow choosing, stuffing, and clothing soft toys is still fun. Five little granddaughters roared around the store.
Daddy was the only boy there. Grampy was invited as well but he stayed home to order the pizza for the dinner celebration after BAB.With pizza, presents, and a rose cake Millie enjoyed the company of family. James came, too! He didn't go to Build A Bear but I think he would have loved it! He is drawn to the Minions! So cute!
Do you remember when YOU were five? I do. I remember sitting in the den and looking at my hand and feeling VERY old, five whole fingers I was. Millie won't be in kindergarten until next year, but I was a young kindergartener. I did not like it at all. I felt lost. I missed my sister and my mama. I was very small and frightened and I did not know what to do with myself at recess. I would climb onto the merry-go-round and hold onto the cold steel bar until recess was over. My brother Dave took me to class in the morning and I would cling to him and sob! He hated that! My five year old year was sort of sad, I guess!
This kindergartener (Miss Samantha Rose) has redeemed her Granny's sad year! She LOVES kindergarten and she's learning so much! Yay!
