It's the 8th day of the 8th month, and today Millie is five.
We're having two parties - one with 'folks' as the Americans say, and another with her friends.
This morning she got up early (about 6 am as usual), and her Mum and Dad gave her some presents. Now she's with us until Kinder this morning.
'Do I look bigger?' she asked this morning. She showed me her foot as she was dressing and asked if it was big.
We don't give her many sweets, as it makes her go 'hyper' but this morning she requested a full chocolate biscuit after breakfast (porridge) 'cos now I've five... and I won't go crazy!'
