I’m not sure what to write about. There are so many big changes going on.
I could talk about this freshly minted six year old, just 6 days ago, and how much she is enjoying her seniority, being the oldest (though not tallest) in her daycare, and the one who knows the answers.
I could talk about her first big party, her 6th birthday celebration, which was a huge success with her contemporaries.
I could talk about how she is taking charge of her medication, and how she manages all details and procedures.
I could talk about her new fascination with underwater experimentation, both in ponds and beaches as well as her own bathtub.
I could talk about her taking complete responsibility for Niri Pinky Ming and how she handles table clearing at all meals. She dresses herself and puts her dirty clothes in the appropriate place, and can fasten most snaps and zippers on her own.
But I should probably talk about the imminent start of kindergarten and of her new school, with uniforms, lunch programs, parent/teacher organizations and new friendly faces.
She looks like she’s ready for the big K. I’m not sure I am, but she is. The big day is Sept 5th. Please wish her and us luck.
