almost five

Alex woke up yesterday morning feeling a little under the weather, with a low grade temperature.  So I kept her home for the day.

However, unlike good moms who use the day off to make sure their little ones are tucked in their beds, well-fed, well-medicined, and are generally healing, evil moms like me use the day as a photo op.

I can't believe that in less than a week, this kid is going to be five years old.  And even though I seem to have said this every 6 months or so since the day she was born, this time I mean it:  this is my very favourite age.
