5 is certainly a magical number. It’s an age where the Magic begins. It is an age whereby one is able to understand everything that is communicated verbally.
At 5 yrs old Tiger girl can communicate her wants/ wishes very clearly. She knows what she wants and is able to make decisions on her own.
This year she wanted strawberry cake and rainbow cake for her birthday. She couldn’t decide on which type of strawberry cake she wanted so we got a few slices of different types of cakes instead. We also got Tiramisu and cookies and cream for the boys since those are their favourite cakes.
She got a My Little Pony Chutes and Ladders set as her birthday present as she had been eyeing that set for a while. We didn’t want to buy her any more My Little Pony toys as she has plenty at home from all the collections which she was gifted on her previous birthday.
This year Tiger girl requested to go bowling instead of swimming. Since starting to play bowling a few months back she is hooked on this spot and have been asking to go to the bowling alley as it has nearly been a month since our last visit.
This time she won hands down against her brothers with 101 points. Really remarkable as the lightest ball at 6 pounds is still much too heavy for her. Tiger girl needs to literally ROLL the ball instead of bowling it in the normal fashion to knock down the pins.
It did help that they had the gutters up for the kids when they bowled or else I’m sure their total scores would have been much lesser.
