Today is my mom’s birthday. I’ll be polite and not disclose her age here. Instead, I’ll pay tribute with thirteen things that Philip would probably like to tell his grandma.
I is for inspiration. You inspire me to try new things and to play with all my heart.
H is for hugs. Thanks for all of them!
E is for encouragement. Thanks for cheering me on.
A is for adventures. You take me tp new places to see new things and meet new people.
R is for rocking chair. Thanks for rocking me to so I can fall asleep or to calm me when I cry.
T is for toys. Thanks for all of the cool toys that are fun and teach me things even when I don’t know I’m learning.
G is for graham crackers and all of the other goodies you give me to eat.
R is for reading. Thanks for taking me to story time, for buying me books.
A is for accepting. Thanks for accepting who I am and loving me no matter what.
N is for naps. Thanks for making me take a nap even when I don’t want to.
D is for driving me to school and the library. I’m glad I get to spend this time with you.
M is for memories. Thanks for making memories with me.
A is for amazing. What more can I say? I hope you have an amazing birthday.
