Oh beautiful darling Poe, happy happy birthday my dear dear one. I love the delight that you share, the wonder in your eyes and your kindness, humour and caring nature. As you turn seven, you have just lost your first two teeth (the last in your class which made it all the more exciting), you love riding your bike everywhere, playing with Ilo and Lara always and you delight in some 'out of this world' awesomely colourful outfits, you sure have style. I love the way in which you view the world, your considerations and worldly pondering, your delight in word play and absolute love in exploring the world around you. Your wonderful (and at times challenging) sensitive side is still present but the way you move through things is something to aspire towards.
Happy Birthday darling one, I am so glad you had an absolutely wonderful time, surrounded by so many who love and delight in you.
One of my most favourite things about the party happened a few days prior when my parents arrived, my dad unveiled not one, not two but seven paper mache mushrooms and two gnome houses that he had made, yes, he made them and painted them. We were all awestruck by their beauty and the effort that my dad put in. Oh my goodness, even now I can't but help gaze at them and feel oh so happy. Thank you Phil, you are amazing (Mum, you know you are amazing too. xxx)
