In our shadows

This evening in the light of the dining room shining into the darkenend lounge, B3 noticed his shadow.

“Look Mum, I’m making myself over there”

“Yes…look, there’s me. They’re our shadows.”

“Why are you so up there?”

“Because I’m taller than you”

“Because you’re six.”

I chuckled and kissed him, and thought of AA Milne’ s lovely verse:

        The End
        When I was One,
        I had just begun.

When I was Two,
        I was nearly new.

When I was Three,
        I was hardly Me.

When I was Four,
        I was not much more.

When I was Five,
        I was just alive.

But now I am Six, I’m as clever as clever.
        So I think I’ll be six now for ever and ever.

Alan Alexander Milne
