Favorite Things to Do at 5 Years Old
Ailey loves to be helpful (most of the time) and will do often do things for small rewards (a hug goes a long way). She enjoys playing board games with Dada. She likes to go to the grocery store with Mama (especially the produce store) and painting. She runs instead of walks. Ailey enjoys playing ‘My Town’ on the iPad, watching ‘My Little Pony’ and ‘Bluey.’ She has a silly sense of humor and sometimes makes comments that are hilarious (without knowing she is being funny).
This year will be Ailey’s first experience as a competitive dancer. She is on the Mini Company team and has one dance in three competitions during the spring. She memorizes dances easily and loves to be on stage.
More Fun Facts about a 5 year Old: Ailey is an emotional girl (in the best way possible). She feels EVERYTHING and can be extremely sentimental, but is also sensitive. She needs time to cool down when she is mad; she needs a hug to calm down when she is extra upset. Ailey LOVES to read books and says she doesn’t want to learn how to read because she likes making up the stories better.
Ailey is cautious when it comes to trying new things; she knows how easily she can get hurt! That doesn’t hinder her from trying new foods though – she has a more diverse palette than Annabelle.
