My little boy has turned five years old. And even though we’ve been talking about his birthday for a while (him especially!), it still caught me by surprise. Well, maybe not the day itself but the fact the he turned five. FIVE! That’s half a decade!
So what is Antek like at five years old? What does he like?
For starters, he is obsessed with Lego. He got his first Lego set after Emilia was born last year and since then he’s been steadily growing his collection. He could play with it all day, every day. He is very creative and builds fabulous vehicles, buildings and creates these funny elaborate ‘adventures’ with his mini-figures in his Lego City.
He enjoys playing football, riding a scooter and bike, swimming, ice-skating, jumping on a trampoline and in general being active and outdoors.
He loves going to school and he’s been so good at learning how to read and write and blend into the structured school routine.
He is smart, intelligent and extremely curious – so much so, that we recently got him a kids encyclopaedia to quench his thirst for knowledge! He wants to know everything about the world around him and it is magical to see him finding about the things that we adults take for granted. He loves his little sister so much and even if he sometimes complains about her you can tell that he’s besotted with her and naturally navigates towards her. He can be extremely stubborn, impatient, and get frustrated very easily, but at the same time he is kind, loving and caring.
I am incredibly proud of the boy he’s becoming. He is everything I envisioned my son to be and I can only hope that he forever feels my love for him and knows how happy I am to have him.
