Today our precious daughter turns 5! It seems more like five minutes ago she was born, not five years! As all parents do remember, especially the moms (labor is quite a memorable experience), I remember the day she was born so clearly. Our son had crawled into bed with us in the wee hours of the morning after having a bad dream. I got up to use the restroom, and my water broke...three weeks early! I looked at my sleeping son thinking, your world is about to change drastically. After a bit of chaos, off to the hospital we went, and at 11:51am on a beautiful, sunny fall day, our prayers were answered, and our tiny, perfect, pink bundle arrived. She was, and still is, the most beautiful little angel girl I have ever known. Now she is five and can be a member of the "whole hand club" at school. Meaning her age equals holding up her whole hand. Their time of being little goes so fast. I cherish my time with "Little Miss Personality Plus". A few examples of her personality for you here, here, and here . Happy Birthday sweet girl, I wish you at least 95 more happy birthdays! It is my great joy to be your mommy. I love everything about you!
In her honor I am going to leave you with two riddles just perfect for five year old kids. The big question is, can the adults answer them? The first actually came to me from my daughter. She learned it in school. The second is one that has been bandied about the internet for a while. It claims that 80% of Stanford students couldn't answer it, but that 80% of kindergartners got the correct answer. I confess that it took my son, when in kindergarten, to solve it for me.
Riddle me this:
What is round, has no windows, no doors, and has a star inside?
What is greater than God, more evil than the Devil, the poor have it, the rich need it, and if you eat it you'll die?
Happy solving on my daughter's Happy Birthday!
