"When I'm five, will I be able to lick my elbow?"

I am a winter baby so I know nothing of the heartache of watching all your classmates celebrate their birthdays before you. Both my babies are July-born, and I'm starting to realise what a big deal it is to finally hit that birthday and be in the 5 gang (or 6 or whatever).

Aside from the yearning, I love the magic of it all, the belief that everything changes overnight and he'll be able to do things he could never do at 4. Bowie knew the truth (as ever) - I've always loved his song, 'When I'm Five'.

This week has passed in a fog of end-of-term celebration and party planning - 40 kids turning out for a joint fifth birthday party tomorrow. Admitting to feeling ever-so-slightly TERRIFIED.

See you on the other side...
