I often have a difficult time coaxing the kids out of bed in the morning. I expected today to be easy, since I could wake Wilson up with the news of his highly anticipated birthday. He was sound asleep on his back when I entered the room. Before I could reach him, he sat straight up and said with disbelief, "Am I five?"
He would not take my word for it...he insisted on seeing himself in a "big" mirror, one that showed his "whole body." After checking himself from head to toe he got a big grin on his face. The maturity that comes with being 5 had finally sunk in.
