Today our twin girls turn six years old.
I know it’s something that a lot of parents say on their children’s birthdays, but the last six years really have flown by.
R and M have grown into so such wonderful, thoughtful, bright and clever girls. I’m so proud of them both, and so honoured to be their mummy.
Rather fittingly a few weeks ago, my husband and I were given a poem during parents evening that the girls teachers want them to learn for the Eisteddfod.
Written by Winnie the Pooh Author, A.A. Milne, it sums up the feeling of being six years old perfectly.
Now We Are Six
When I was one
I had just begun
When I was two
I was nearly new
When I was three
I was hardly me
When I was four
I was not much more
When I was five
I was just alive
But now I am six
I’m as clever as clever
So I think I’ll be six now
For ever and ever
Author: A. A. Milne
Isn’t that a lovely poem! I’d not heard it before, but think it’s pretty magical!
The girls will open their presents from their daddy and I this morning before they go to school. I’ve bought them a birthday badge each to wear in school as well!
When they come, their siblings will most likely pop round to see them, along with their Nanna. On the weekend, they’re having a birthday party with some school friends in our house.
It’s the first time we’ll be having a party at home with traditional party games. I think it’s a nice change from the usual soft play type parties. I’m sure the girls and their friends will have a great day.
Happy birthday girls!
Mummy and Daddy love you both so much!
