Happy Birthday Poem for Liz

Dearest Lizzie,

Of all your wonderful years on earth (so far!)
I’ve known you more than half
You may have even grown more wise – but
Still act the eejit to make me laugh

You most of all, have sacrificed a lot
Continually putting the kids and I before yourself
I tried to be like you on Mother’s Day
But it was much too exhausting that I had to stop

Your birthday is one of my favorite days
Because I get to spend it all with you
And with our little mini-me’s at school
We get to do whatever WE want to do

(Just kidding, Nathan, gossssh. Sort of.)

Before I close I need to say
How drop-dead gorgeous you look today
I hope I look as good as you
When I reach 21 too.
