When it almost made my eyes misty, I realized I am starting to have some pre-birthday anxiety. In less than a month from today my children will celebrate their 6th birthday. Although I don't find myself actively feeling emotional, I do have all kinds of questions about '6 year olds.'
Do they need a later bedtime?
Should we reevaluate chores and allowance?
Are they too old to be carried/held occasionally?
Are they old enough for Nintendo DS?
I mean, it is not like a day on the calendar changes everything overnight, but I feel like 6 sounds so much older than 5.
I need to relax.
