It’s great to be Us

February 17th, 2009

The other day, in the car, Zibby told me, “It’s great to be us!”

And it really is.

Yesterday Zibby turned 5.

Here are some things about Zibby:
she loves pink
she loves pumpkin spice cake from trader joes
she doesnt like coats
she likes to dance and sing
she loves high school musical
she loves to give gifts

zibby can write letters and numbers, though sometimes they are backwards. she knows how to spell “Zibby” and “Nancy” and knows that John starts with J and Henry starts with H. She can draw hearts and likes to draw pictures of our family. She often asks how to spell something and will write down the letters you call out. She has several songs memorized from High School Musical and knows many Elizabeth Mitchell songs. She has a large vocabulary and uses a lot of colloquiallisms and phrases that she hears. She likes to tell made up knock knock jokes (they dont really make sense, but she laughs alot)

Her favorite shows on tv are: Maggie and the Ferocious Beast, Little Bear, Backyardigans, Dora, Diego, Clifford, Little Bill, and new on the requests are Sonny with a Chance, Hannah Montana and Cheetah Girls.

Zibby wants to be a rock star when she grows up, or a ballerina.
And when she is a mommy, I can be her mommy neighbor and watch her kids when she goes shopping (I was told this)

Zibby likes her gymnastics classes and could probably take or leave Spanish. We probably wont continue with Spanish after this session. For the spring Im hoping we can do swimming lessons, tumbling and finish out Spanish.

Zibby really really really loves her Dad. Im so glad my children have such a great father. They get along great and she is glued to him the minute he walks in the door from work and all weekend long.

For her birthday dinner I made hamburgers and tater tots and green beans. And we had pumpkin spice cake for dessert.

Ive officially been a mother for 5 years, and I have to thank Zibby for that of course. She has made me want to grow and learn and be a better person. She is such a sweet and wonderful person and I am thrilled to spend my life with her.

Happy birthday, sweet baby girl.
