Back when Bella was almost 2 I remember going to a fair with lots of rides including a reverse bungy. She asked us to go on it, but was of course too small and the kind guy running the ride told her she had to be 5. For the past 2 years, turning "5" has been referred too like it is a magical age that when she finally hit it, she would be able to do everything in the world.
So yesterday, when she woke up and came into our bedroom, after first informing me that she would be going to "big" school today since she was now 5 (I probably should have explained the whole going to big school when your 5 a bit better as in not the DAY you turn 5) then with a puzzled look on her face told me that she was now 5 but it didn't really look like her legs had grown that much overnight. It was hard not to giggle but it was such a classic Bella thing to say. She remembers EVERYTHING you tell her,,. for months... for years. Her imagination is constantly ticking over making up stories and games.
