Now We Are Six

Leave a comment

Miss O turned 6 yesterday.  I don’t know about you but I regard 6 as a milestone birthday.  It is up there with 18th, 21st and 40th.  I am not really sure why.  Perhaps it is because I still remember my own 6th birthday.

Whatever the reason, I think A. A. Milne summed it up beautifully.

Now We Are Six – A.A. Milne

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.
