Then He Was Six

Six is big.

Six is reading, writing, and riding a skateboard.

six is...

Old skateboard + new grip tape + a coat of chalkboard paint = a happy boy

Six is not too big to be held by mama,

molly and aidan at apple hill 2008

even if his feet go past my knees when I carry him.

And six is definitely not too big to ask for a pom pom.

six is...

I'm oh so grateful that he wanted a pom pom.

Happy birthday baby boy!

  2. Oh, happy 6th birthday!! You're right Molly - 6 is both big and little at the same time. So bittersweet.

    And happy day to you too. You should be very proud of your sweet boy.

  3. what a doll. Can I still say that at 6?
    That pom pom rocks, and the skateboard is divine. Ours is hiding under our bed until, um, 6.
    Best wishes to the man! And to you, mama - six years of raising a boy. Oh goodness!

  4. 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.

  8. Wow, amazing how time flies! It's also been 6 years that Chelsea and Alex have been married! He is such a super neat grandson. Just watch the skateboard being left behind cars, Robert's got run over by the neighbor's car at about that age.

  12. Cuteness. Fortunately, seven isn't all that much different! It's eight that I'm beginning to get worried about.

  13. well allison, i can tell you girl eight is something else. getting so old, maturing at an alarming rate, but oh so enjoyable. i'm glad i have a few years before crossing the boy eight bridge.

  14. A Happy, Happy 6 to Aidan and his wonderful mama!!
    I think 6 sounds so filled with promise, yet it seems bittersweet as 6 is definitely a "kid" age.
    By the way, that's a pretty sweet board- you rock Molly!
