On Turning Four
I like to play at the park
to ride my bicycle too
I like going to the library,
and going to the farm where I play with Clover
and ride the Jeep around.
I like to eat oatmeal and Raisin Bran
oh and bagels, and chicken and broccoli soup,
and also I like to eat for dinner is
And ice cream and yogurt, of course.
I like dancing in the big class
and wearing tutus,
and dancing with dresses
and when I don't have dresses I like dancing like that too.
I like to read Waking up Wendell
and Winnie the Pooh books
I like watching Winnie the Pooh too,
and Boz and seeing pictures of where
Grandma Nancy and Papa Steve when to
I like going to Grandma Sharon's school
and going to Daddy's school
even though Clover doesn't go to Daddy's school
and Grandma Sharon's school very often.
I like to wrestle with Daddy and I say,
(as she laughs)
"Hey! No! Stop it!"
I like treats like candy canes
I like to go to the beach where I throw sand in the water
I like singing songs like Wheels on the Bus and
If You're Happy and You Know It.
I like to hug Grandma Great
and I like her voice
and I love her.
I love Jules and Daisy
Clover and Grandma Nancy and Papa Steve
and Grandma Sharon and Papa Chuck
and I love Grandpa Great and Grandma Donna
who take me to the farm.
I like everything!
(and if your momma could add to the list
she would say:
you like shaking the jingle bells at the library
giving Jules goodnight kisses
snuggling in bed
and drinking Jamba Juice and eating Great Harvest bread
you love to draw and dance and sing
and make us laugh
you love to pray and go to church
and memorize verses.
you are amazing.
you are four.)
This is what I like.
Today I am four
but I'm still three a little bit
but I'm also still four.
