Their Bones Are Made of Sparkles

SPARKLE

Make sure you spend six being as sixish as you can possibly be so when you turn seven you don’t have any regrets. —Ella’s violin teacher

When I look up from whatever it is I’m doing and see her standing there in her bare feet, tie-dyed PJ’s, wild hair and Joan Crawford lips—it’s gone way beyond a love affair. My heart balloons outward with this crazy love for her, and with appreciation for this wonder-filled, sixish time in her life.

Six-year-olds are: magical, wild, curious, open, innocent, playful, honest, lovers of nature—but they are so much more, and I’m at a loss for words to describe them. But Ella can. She said, “When I was born, God told me I’d be beautiful on the inside so my bones are made of sparkles.”

That’s how you describe six-year-olds. Their bones are made of sparkles.

Step 1: Ella gets into the lipstick.

Step 2: Pippi gets smooched.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3. I get smooched.

  3. Absolutely precious. And I can relate to the heart swelling. Some days I want to press “Pause” on the passing time of these priceless years.
