On the last day she was 5...

She woke up at 8am, wearing her red and pink pjs with the penguin on them.

She climbed into my bed and stole my iPad first thing.

She had 4 tube feeds, 3 breathing treatments, 2 doses of Advair, 1 dose of Miralax, 1 dose of steroids, and 1 dose of antibiotics.

She had her 21st absence of the school year.

She ate 2 chicken nuggets.

She had a pediatrician's appointment to recheck her pneumonia.

We played Hangman and Tic-Tac-Toe in the hallways while we waited our turn. A stranger commented on how smart she is.

She wore her soft pink pants, pink heart shirt, and her Twinkle Toes.

She belted out Firework while we were driving in the car.

She made herself a cardboard iPad of her very own.

She went to cub scouts.

She gave me her very last 5 year old hugs and kisses and promised to give me her first 6 year old hugs in the morning.

She woke up an hour after falling asleep to ask me if she was six yet...when I said no, she said, "Darnit!" and went back to sleep.


The past 2,191 days have been a wild, sometimes frightening, amazing, life changing, hilarious, entertaining, joyful time in our lives and I can't wait to see what the next 365 hold. Happy SIXTH birthday, KayTar, you have filled our lives to the brim...and then some!
