This week my little boy Nikolas turned 6!
Being the inquisitive guy he is, Niki asked me “Mama, when will I exactly turn 6? When? When I am sleeping?” I explained to him that since he was born in the middle of the night at 12:25 a.m. (on October 7th, 2007) that he will actually turn six while he will be sleeping. The next question was “So Mama, how much will I grow overnight? Since I will be a whole year older in the morning will I be a lot bigger?” To not crush his hope of growing by leaps and bounds throughout the night, I gave him a measurement of about a half an inch with my fingers. That was enough to appease him and get a half smile.
It has been a busy year for us which included recently moving, but perhaps the most notable milestone for Niki was starting kindergarten. Here he is on his first day of school which was Monday August 26th. Niki loves kindergarten and he said his teacher Ms. Claire is the best teacher in the whole world! Thank you to Ms. Claire for making the transition to school a wonderful experience.
Happy Birthday Niki!
I love you to the moon and stars and back again!
