Today my littlest kiddo turned five.
Love That Girl
(Inspired by Jack who was inspired by Walter Dean Myers)
Love that girl,
like a bird loves to fly
I said I love that girl
like a bird loves to fly.
Love to snuggle her in the morning
love to tell her,
"I'm so glad you're mine!"
The idea for this poem - as well as many of the words - was taken from one of my favorite books ever. Love That Dog by Sharon Creech.
Abigail truly 'gets' poetry and we read this book often. However, lately she's been reading it to me.
She is a scientist in the truest sense of the word and is constantly aware of the world around her. Today she pointed out that this wasp was about to sting the bumble bee!
She is a foodie and loves to help cook. Today she devoured a bowl of butter beans and angel hair pasta - school makes her very hungry.
In the evening she opened her presents, took a bath, blew out the candles on her cake (technically it's a Boston Creme Pie - this girl knows what she wants), ate a huge slice and went to bed surrounded by her gifts. It was a great day.
Tomorrow, I'll share the small gift I made for Abigail as well as the scoop sweater.
