That Kid With a Moth on his Nose is Now 18

pastedgraphic-1

I remember in 2010 how I wrote a Poem called ‘That smile’
Seems like yesterday but it has been quite a while

It was about my grandson Jayden who is such a pleasure
My pride in him is immense, I could never be able to measure

Today is his birthday, the years have gone too fast
I so wanted his funny young innocent boy time to last

But alas he is now a young man
And of course naturally I am his biggest fan

He is indépendant, honest, respectful and delightful in all ways
I so wish him a great birthday and abundance of wealth health and happiness for the rest of his days

That kid with a moth on his nose is now eighteen
For me, how blessed for 18 years have I been

IMG_1924

Well another year has gone round
Oh my the Years are going too fast I have found

That baby is now a very tall 42 years old
He has a few stories that I have never been told

2016 Has been a big year for him
Got married and no longer living in sin

She is a good one you better believe
He knows she the best, he ain’t never going to leave

Anyway you will never guess, his luck did grow
He won a raffle and they are off to Canada to Heliski in mountains of snow

Yep it’s been a good year for him
He deserves it, his life is now full to the brim

Your life together with Kerry will be truly blessed
Happy Birthday Jono cause you are the best

Love Mom xxxxx

Best Buy Wednesday – All-natural flavor straws encourage milk drinking.

Another great gift for birthday party for kids or stocking filler for Christmas. I think these are terrific.

We all know that milk does a body good, but many growing kids want more flavorful drinks. With Magic Milk Straws, even the most reluctant kids (and adults, too!) will be begging to drink a glass of milk everyday.

Each Magic Milk Straw is crammed with all-natural flavor beads which transform your milk into a delicious treat. As you sip, the beads dissolve and infuse tasty strawberry, chocolate, vanilla milkshake, or cookies and cream flavor into your milk.

Magic Milk Straws are low in sugar, lactose-free, gluten-free, preservative-free, and have zero fat and cholesterol. We currently offer 6-packs (all six of one particular flavor) as well as two bulk assortment packs. All straws are single-use.

Poem Friday on Thursday – 09/03/2015 – Happy Birthday Jono I Know You Will Have a Good Day

Jono and Kerry

Jono and Kerry

Happy Birthday Jono I know you will Have a Good Day
Author – Me His Mom

It was 41 years ago my boy was born
The fact that those years just swept away is something I do mourn

From boy to man that went way to fast
Mostly fun and adventure in those years passed

He has found the love of his life
And next year round March she will be his wife

Pretty well suited I am beginning to think
life for them both seems to be in the pink

Jono is kind, Loyal and strong, I did a good job
I love that he is having fun riding my Fat Bob

I really don’t know what else to say
Except, Love you, Happy Birthday Jono I know you will have a good day

Jono, kerry, Mika and me

Jono, kerry, Mika and me

Poem Friday on Saturday – 08/15/2015 – You Are All The Colors Of The Rainbow

IMG_1733

You are All the colors of the Rainbow
Author:- Me his Mom

The yellow of the rainbow is the light of the sun
He was born with strength, a smile, his life just begun

The red of the rainbow is that of fire
He was born with determination and courage I admire

The blue of the rainbow is that so true
He was born loyal, impressive to those who knew

The green of the rainbow is natures beauty
He was born with the love of water, to enjoy is his duty

The many other colors of the rainbow to me is love
This kid is an honor, now a man of 43, who I respect, a gift from above

Happy birthday Jamin, you are special because I say-so
You make me proud because to me you are all the colors of the rainbow
