You're Only Six Once

Melissa turned six years old on Saturday.


It's hard to believe,
but it's true,
the Sweet Baboo
is no longer two...

(she'll soon be DRIVING...!)

On Sunday I went to visit Melissa. We filled the wading pool and splashed around in the sunshine, chit-chatting in a rare moment of one-on-one.

"How do you like being six?" I asked Melissa.

She fished out a bug from the pool with her digging claw and paused for a moment to consider her answer.

Very earnestly, she said: "I don't know, Auntie Gail. This is my first time to be six."
