We celebrated Ava's 5th birthday on Tuesday. Nothing prepared me for how hard it would be for her to turn 5. I have to admit I wasn't excited like I normally am for her to be a year older. I was thrilled to celebrate her birthday but nausious that she is now 5 which is so close to 10 which means anyday she is packing her bags jumping in her car, driving away and heading off to college. I always try to think of all of the good things that will happen throughout my child's upcoming year and be positive but it was really difficult this year. I do love though that as Addy and Ava have gotten older, they have become closer. They really have become bestest of friends. I took Ava to the movies Tuesday afternoon to see Megamind (which was so not a movie for a 5 year old little girl) and she cried the whole way home for Addison saying that she missed her sooo much because we were gone a really long time. So sweet. What else could a mom want? I hope that even when they drift away from being close and have fallouts (bc all sisters do) when they get older they always go back to being friends.
