What fun it is to be a 6 year old. Life is a series of birthday parties, losing teeth, enjoying kindergarten, and playing with friends. What’s not to like?
Our 6 year old, Diana, lost another tooth the other day. Actually, it’s more accurate to say that Diana’s tooth got pulled out by Dad who, after 5 kids, has plenty of experience extracting loose teeth and has no patience for watching kids wiggle and play with loose teeth for weeks before they fall out on their own.
Diana wasn’t lucky enough to get a “friend party” this year. I can’t remember if the kids get a “friend party” on their even or odd numbered birthdays but it seems to me that the policy is flexible and depends largely upon how busy or tired Nancy is. So, bummer for Diana this year that there wasn’t a friend party but even a family birthday party is still good.
Polly Pockets, My Little Ponies, Barbies, and lip gloss are the things that delight 6 year old girls. They’re also the type of things that I endlessly find strewn about the house. It seems as if we have a thousand Pollies, Ponies, and Barbies lying around but for some reason our collection is never complete. Happy Birthday Diana. Don’t grow up too quickly. I hope you enjoy Pollies, Ponies, and Barbies for several years to come.
