Happy Birthday Griffin

Griffin Likes To Smash It
By Grandma Baadsgaard
I love you Griffin. You make me smile.

Griffin likes to smash it
When his brother builds a tower
When he mother says, “Stop that!”
Griffin’s face turns sour

Griffin likes to throw it
When he sees a round red ball
When his big brother takes it
He breaks down and bawls

Griffin likes to take it
When he sees his Granny’s hand
Then they go for rides
All over Disneyland

Griffin likes to hug it
When he sits on Mommy’s knee
He puts his arms around her neck
And squeezes till he’s free

Griffin likes to eat it
When he sees candy anywhere.
And when it is time for baths
He runs around in the bare.

Griffin likes to blow it
When his straw is in his drink.
Then he likes to dump it
Right in the kitchen sink.

Griffin likes to push it
When with someone half his size.
But when they start to cry
He can’t figure out why.

Griffin has been two a while
But now he’s turning three
He is an angel . . . when asleep
As quiet as can be.

Happy Birthday Daniel

DANIEL IS FOUR
By Grandma Baadsgaard
Happy birthday my sweet Daniel

Sometimes when you’re four
Life can be a bore
So you stand on your head
Before you make your bed
Then it’s time to jump
With elbows for a pump
Cause you don’t like to wait
For any important date
No more frowning faces
For you are going places
You don’t like to walk
When exploring your home block
You just have to run
To soak in all the fun
If a plane appears in the sky
You have to stop and yell, “Hi!”
If you see a truck
You know you are in luck
When you feel the beat
You stomp your foot and leap
When you see the cat
You throw treats at her mat
You eat chips and rice
And cheese just like a mouse
If you have a boo-boo
Only Dan can kiss you
But when it’s time for sleep
Mom will take a peek
And kiss your little head
Before you get out of bed
And explore for one more day
Of four-year-old fun and play.
