Now We Are Six

When I was a little girl, I learned a poem. I stood in my aunt's kitchen, which also happened to be the same room where I was born, and my aunt prompted me through the lines and cheered when I was done. I never forgot that poem, and when my children reach a certain age they learn it as well. This is Greyson's year.

Now We Are Six
By 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


Forever and Ever



He speaks softly so turn up the volume, and try to ignore the squawking toddler in the background.

  2. If you think the pics of the train are awesome, make sure you show the boys the links I added to the post. They will faint over those as well. :) My girls keep wanting to watch them over and over.
