And now we are seven…

Seven. Big-girl seven. One third of the way to adulthood. One foot still firmly in childhood. Fairies exist. Teeth fall out. Reading is magical. The movie Frozen is THE BEST. As is One Direction (really, I ask myself…how does she know them??). French plaits are awesome. Coloring is too. Swinging. Yes! Jokes make no sense…at least to me. The bike needs still to be learned. She hugs and kisses me less. But if she does, I appreciate it more. She is charming and smiley and heartfelt and strong and vulnerable and determined and creative. When she grows up, she wants to be an artist. And a teacher. Her favourite dinner is anything chicken. Her favourite time is morning. And she still goes to bed at 6. She calls Harry her little brother. Oh and yes…the night before her birthday, her 8th tooth came out. (check out that smile!)
