This not-so-little-one turned Seven!

T turned seven over the weekend.  This growing-up business is happening way too soon for my husband and I.  We want to enjoy her more.

She had a party with her friends at iBounce on Saturday and it was just madness and mayhem.  But all the kids enjoyed it and that’s what matters isn’t it?  I wish I could share some photos but now that T is growing-older I’ve decided to refrain from posting photos of her where you can see her face.  If you’ve noticed, it’s always from afar, or her back or side view.  She’s growing up you see, and I want to protect her privacy.

What do we know about the number seven?

There are seven colours in a rainbow: red, yellow, green, blue, violet, orange and indigo.  Apparently, the number seven is significant in the Bible.  It denotes completeness or perfection.  The scholars believe that it’s because God rested on the seventh day after creating the world.  In Judaism, the universe is made of seven heavens.  And then of course, there’s the seven deadly sins.

If you google the number 7, you’ll find an endless list but before I digress again, I’ve decided to make …

Ah parenthood, I didn’t anticipate that watching your child grow-up could actually be painful.  It sounds selfish I know, but sometimes I just want her to stay little just little a wee bit more.

Now excuse me while I pick-up more wrapping paper off the floor.  I think I’ve forgotten what it looks like!
