When I imagined having children, when I tried to imagine having children because thinking of actually having a baby just caused my brain to go blank, I only ever imagined the under-five bit.
I have six nieces and nephews, ranging from 18 months to 21 years old so I do know that children grow up, but still I only imagined my children being under-five.
But, today, Mighty Girl is five years old.
Five whole years.
Nope, I still can’t get my head around that.
Happy Birthday to my wonderful, astute, beautiful, artistic, intelligent, articulate, fantastic and amazing first-born daughter.
