Today I'm Five; That Means I'm Almost Six

Have you ever had the feeling that someone was watching you while you're sleeping? If you are a mom, then your answer is likely to be yes. The other morning I opened my eyes to a bright-eyed, handsome, little birthday boy staring me down. He was patiently waiting for me to wake up so he could make his grand announcement, "MOM, TODAY I AM FIVE; THAT MEANS I AM ALMOST SIX." He tells me this with eyes so wide that you can see white all the way around his pupil. He is very animated and this is his go-to face whenever he has something interesting to tell you...for him that's almost everything. It is known among friends as, "the Jon face."

"Today I am five; that means I am almost six." I am guessing that Jon likes to live for the future. Not a bad thing, just completely opposite of his mother. I am more of a live-for-the-moment type of girl. He better be careful because statements like that are likely to put me in a very unstable emotional state. Not only do I like to live in the moment, thinking about time passing actually puts me in a bit of a depression. I don't want to think about him turning six, I am just trying to wrap my brain around the fact that he's five. Where has the time gone?

Jon is the sweetest boy you will ever meet. When I think of Jon, I think "cool." He's the kid that will give you a pointed finger and a nod when agreeing with you. I will ask him to do something and he will reply with, "Of course, my sweetie Mom." He is such a joy to be around, he always has a story to tell or a quirky one-liner to share.

We love you Jon; you're our sweetie boy!

If you don't know all the words to a song, just make them up... and then own it!
