Happy Birthday Hatchling no3

Today's birthday is a particularly special one.

Because, today, Hatchling no3 turned 5.

That's right, the big 5!

(She was terrified of the candle, hence we went with just one, a nice safe tea light, with glitter of course.)

Now, five may not seem a big deal to most, but this little hatchling has waited a very long time.

You see, this hatchling, aged just 2, told us, 'Next bird - day, I am gonna be five!'

And then, she turned three.

She was not a happy girl. 

She took it in good stride, and asked daily, 'Next birthday, can I be five?'

'Please! Please! Please!'

Along came her fourth birthday, and she was heartbroken.

I told her, 'You can be five for two years, okay.'

However, her sisters promptly corrected her. 

They did not feel she had earned a five yet.

And so this little hatchling spent another long year, waiting to be five.

And today, her dream, has finally come true.

I am so proud of you!

You amazing five year old.

I sincerely hope that being five is everything you could ever wish for!


  1. Aw, what a sweetie!! My 2nd boy was so excited to be 8 so he could ride in the front seat of the car with me ;-)

    I am stopping by from GYB party, slowly making my way through the whole list.

  2. I adore how you call your child the "hatchlings". So cute! And it's quite clear from your posts that your family is your everything. Treasure that!
