The world's your oyster

I can't believe it's a whole six years since I gave birth to this wonderful, spirited boy.  Seems like yesterday!  Mikus is a very happy six year old.  He is convinced that being older is the best thing ever.  He is waiting  for his teeth to start falling out.  Impatient to start school.  Demands to do things himself - things that are meant for much older kids.  He is also a big softie under his big-boy exterior, and give the best cuddles in the world.  We have a secret handshake to say goodbye every day at kindergarten, and sometimes Mik likes me to sit with him as he goes to sleep. Of course he was totally spoiled today, and got more Lego than he could handle,  which has been entertaining the boys all afternoon.  The old light-up globe was also a present from Granddad - the boys love maps, and Mikus likes to find obscure places that he wants to visit - like Madagascar, or Hawaii, or Laos where his Uncle Jon and Aunt Courtney live. Tonight's entertainment is a Star Wars rerun - by request of the birthday boy, of course. 

This is the view out of our bedroom window this morning.  The fluorescent green of budding leaves is one of my favourite colours.  Not that I want a jumper, or curtains, or eyeshadow in that colour.  But on a tree in April - just delicious.

    It sounds like Mikus had a great day; I can't believe he is 6!! I just love the expression on both boys' faces as the Star Wars lego was being unwrapped!

  4. Wish Mikus a massive Happy birthday from all of us. Some Lego will be on it's way- as soon as you email me your new address! He looks so much like you Mook, it's freaky. Love the pure joy at the sight of that lego box. Also love the view from your window of spring popping out day by day. Can imagine that green in a cushion or a scarf.....Melxx
