Five is such a fun age. Old enough to converse and have very adult like conversations but young enough to enjoy the play time of childhood and the wonder of everything in her world.
While listening to American Idol…
Tori: Mommy who do you think the best singer in the whole entire world is? (And then she whispers…) You can say my name if you want to.
I wanted to.
Ty: Mommy why do you have this look on your face right now?
Me: I am just thinking about things.
Ty: Are you thinking about me?
Me: No. Do you wish I was thinking about you?
Me: Okay. This time I will stare off and think about you. (He laughs).
Ty: What are you thinking about me?
Me: I am thinking how wonderful you are. How you were born so tiny and how much I wanted you and how much I love you.
He gets off the couch, hugs me, kisses me, and then says
Ty: Now I am thinking about you and thinking that I love you so much.
Tori: Mommy? Would you think about me now?
Me: I need to get my stuff all ready for my shoot tomorrow.
Tori: If you need help, I will be right behind you. I’ll be right by your side. If you have heavy bags, I am strong enough. I will be beside you every step of the way.
I ordered Tori’s dress from Etsy – Crocodile Crunch for her pictures and for Easter. Love it.
After a coughing attack…
Tori: Mom you had better go get some of your air. (Referring to my inhaler)
