“When I’m Five Years Old…”

October 13, 2014 | By Brent Almond | DAD STUFF, MAKING MEMORIES

It’s hard to wrap my head around it, but in just a few weeks I will be the father of a 5-year-old. The time seems to have raced past (oftentimes knocking me on my ass), but of course for our little big boy, it can’t go fast enough. Ever since Jon understood he was a certain number and that there were other numbers higher than his, he’s longed to be higher, bigger, older, faster… and just all around more. As if that were even possible.

Yet as he’s gotten closer to his quinquennial anniversary on Earth, the plans Jon has made for when that day arrives have grown more specific, more elaborate, and good god, more frequent. So between now and his birthday, I’ll be randomly posting a sampling of the things our ambitious boy has declared he will do/be/have when he turns five years old.

    Great post, I love this idea. I recorded my daughter when she was five. We have a voiceover studio in our house and I asked her things like what she wanted to be and what her favorite song was, etc. I am hoping to do it every few years, but time does get away from you. Nice to see you enjoying it as your son approaches the big 05!

    Wow, a real growth spurt is coming! He’s going to need some new clothes. I’m guessing that isn’t on his list of the presents he wished for.
    Cute stuff.
