Here we are again, another year has past
and I’m sitting here thinking it went by so awfully fast.
This turning six is a big deal
“I should be treated as a grown-up!”
is how you say you feel.
And while you feel you’re good as grown
I’ll have to stop you right there
I am just not ready,
nope, no where near prepared.
It’s time to just slow down a bit
Take the moment and savor it.
Looking back over the year of you
A move, new house and starting school, too.
Lots of changes came your way
Reading, writing and ‘rithmetic
And lots and lots of play!
You love your new teacher
Her color system works the best
Getting purple or staying on green
is your daily quest
You love Monopoly
And have caught on so quick
We play and you beat us all
We need to learn your trick!
You love to chase the dog around
He likes to chase you, too
Playing fetch and giving loves
Is what you (both) like to do!
I can’t imagine a single day
Without a Jacob in it
I love you birthday boy
And your charming spirit!
