Seems like just-yesterday, we were welcoming our little Nixi into this world, and now…she’s five years old. My…how time flies when you’re having fun and chasing a little’n at the ripe ‘young’ age of 46! : P Even though my Nixi leaves me feeling quite exhausted most days, I find it invigorating just-the-same.
Today I found the energy to go for an hour-long walk along the ocean; pushing Baby in her jogger…all the way…for over an hour round-trip. I should feel drained, but I don’t! Instead…I feel like I actually accomplished something today. In fact…this whole week, since Sunday when Baby turned 5, has been a very pleasant…but busy, change to our regular everyday; which I admit has become quite monotonous.
One thing most folks know about me, if they know me at all, is that me and ‘monotony’ do NOT mix. I long for change…adventures anew, each and every day. I long to wander this vast globe of opportunity, and see the things many have yet to see. Still, I am stationary…for now! I keep telling myself, ‘Your days a-comin’ little lady! Your days a-comin.’ I look so-very forward to the rest of my life.
Seeing my youngest child growing so fast, my oldest with a child of her own (my only grandchild), and my son in the Army…away and very missed, reminds me I really don’t have all the time in the world. But for now…I am sharing some pics from her 5th Birthday Party. I hope it brings a smile to your face, and some joy to your heart. I know seeing them again, certainly made me smile. : ))
