When you are Five…

When you are Five you want to know if “Mama said you could have ALL the stawberries” even if that sibling is only having two, JUST because you are not having THOSE two…

When you are Five, the other person ate “the rest of” the bowl… of what “ever” it was, albeit popcorn, chips, crackers… when YOU did not finish the last 18 bites…

When you are Five, LIFE is all about JUSTICE, but NOT Justice for all… Just Justice FOR you, and Justice according to you…

When you are Five, you can begin to understand… when a compassionate understanding person actually EXPLAINS how the OTHER person may feel… and THAT is a pretty big deal…

when you are five, EVERY day is a new day, grudges are NOT worth keeping, you can buy anything you can dream of WITH a dime, or at least YOU THINK you can, and THINK you OUGHT to be able to..

When you are Five, life is full of imagination, and every meal is monumentally important, hugs are essential, boo boo’s are battle wounds with real stories attatched and WOE unto the person who isn’t willing to sit down a spell and LISTEN…

When you are Five, you don’t care too much if you are sick, you just think about how great it feels to feel a bit better than a minute ago…

When you are five, the world is your oyster, and oysters are still squishy, and silly, and fun to play with NOT something you eat… and certainly NEVER raw.. eeew GROOOOWWWZSSE!

When you are Five, play with water is so fun, and be it the beach, a bucket, a sprinkler or a pool it matters little still to you

When you are Five, summer is endless, winter is grand, spring time is magical, and autumn is a palate of paints, and music under your feet…

When you are Five… you surely are alive..
and bike rides, scooters, and bouncy balls are just universally FUN

do you have a friend who is five?
I do…
He is one of my BESTEST friends in the whole entire universe… I love him to the end of the universe and back again a million billion times infinity and beyond!
Buddy is Five this summer, this whole wonderful year…
and I am so enjoying him, and am thankful for every second with him…
for snuggle time reading books when he feels icky
and for sitting back and watching him climb trees and have GREAT and wonderful adventures when he feels ok…
I love to see him sail the seven seas, play cowboy and indian, or Revolutionary War, I love to hear all about fighting in WWII and the Pacific ocean attacks…. I love the crabapple launches from the tree…

I loved four
and I loved three
I am so enjoyin Five
or maybe…
It is just Buddy!
