Do you write silly poems to your kids on their birthdays?

Dan Pearce just posted his latest oeuvre to his 8-year-old on his blog, Single Dad Laughing. It’s a beaut, containing classic lines like:

“You have this great smile that stretches clear to the moon,
And each time that you smile it, away goes all gloom.”

Read the rest on Dan’s blog. (He’s one of the best! Be sure to check out “This Dad, That Dad,” which should be required reading for anyone struggling with the idea of their ex’s current partner being a parent to their child.) Then come back here and post your best, worst and funniest lines of Mom or Dad poetry, or any classic ditties your kids have written to you. If we get enough good ones, we’ll make it an article! (Extra credit for drawings, too.)
