Happy #6 Big Sister!

She's finally 6! She had to wait all year to be six because she has the last birthday in our family. Nevermind that we all have to wait a whole year for her birthday....She wishes that her birthday was January 1st so that she didn't have to wait a whole year. But she's 6 now! And beyond thrilled. 

This year I gave her the choice of having a couple friends go bowling or have a few more friends over for a party. She chose a party with a Tinkerbell theme and invited some girls from her 1st grade class. So reluctantly I dragged myself to Party City and bought into Disney's commercialism by buying a plethora of Tinkerbell products. What I want to know is how Tinkerbell even became "something". She was a tiny fairy that sprinkled pixie dust in Peter Pan and now she has her own movie and product line??? Anyway, Big Sister is super excited so that's what matters. I'm happy to push aside my distaste for all things commercialized-Disney for the happiness of my child this year.

Some things about Big Sister lately:

She has been super helpful around the house. She loves to help me clean the bathroom, put away the dishes in the kitchen and wash windows. Let's hope that keeps up. She doesn't like putting away her clean clothes though.

She is reading like a champ now. Something clicked halfway though Kindergarten last year to where she figured she could read simple words, but just in the last couple months she has excelled with reading. She is getting much more confident. I'm so proud of her!

Her favorite foods are pizza and spaghetti. She loves to ride around on her razor scooter but her favorite thing to do is jump rope. 

We love you Big Sister! Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday, Big Sister! And at the risk of being redundant, she is beautiful and does look like her mother. (Hey, it's not my fault I came here fourth. Oh wait, I guess it is.)
