“When I have said my evening prayer,
And my clothes are folded on my chair,
Mommy and daddy switch off the light,
I’ll still be two years old tonight.
But from the very break of day,
Before the children rise and play,
Before the darkness turns to gold,
Tomorrow I’ll be three years old…
Three kisses when I wake,
Three candles on my cake.
A goodnight kiss for the two year old
To send her to sleep and to dreaming.
And blessings to the three year old
Who’ll climb out of bed in the morning.”
-from The Birthday Book
Two was a glorious year, and I'm ecstatic to experience all Three will bring. You light up our world, sweet Rowan Marie.
Happy Third Birthday!
