3 Year Old Haikus

In honor of my amazing son on his third birthday

IMG_6663

Under the blanket

Together on the sofa

Hiding from tigers

——————–

The age of “por que?”

Endless curiosity

Learning more and more

IMG_6365

Skinny arms and legs

His belly like a balloon

Big brown eyes and hair

IMG_6877

Front facing carseat

So much more interaction

Papa! Look at that!

IMG_6207

We shout with delight

With every bridge and tunnel

Along the freeway

——————–

No taking pictures!

Sick of the paparazzi

He’ll thank me someday

IMG_7184

Tortilla maker

My helper in the kitchen

He’s truly a chef

IMG_6041

Mi tortillero

Mi mejor asistente

Mi futuro chef

IMG_6844

He must be my son

If sampling all our spices

Brings him that much joy

IMG_7181

He looked so concerned

And gathered his toys and food

For children in need

——————–

Animal crackers

To get him to try to swim

Now he’s like a fish

IMG_6273

Long, lean and agile

He powers through the water

This kid’s built to swim

IMG_6841

Downward dog and plank

Superman and tabletop

I in alignment!

IMG_6507

Gummy vitamins…

“I no eat my gummies day”

Ellis, that’s not true

IMG_5750

An amazing host

He’ll offer you a pillow

And share all his toys

IMG_5780

How can anyone

Hear one song so many times?

And still love it so?

——————–

I drive poquito?

Every time we get back home

Highlight of his day

IMG_6379

During a meltdown

Nothing will satisfy him

Toddler life is tough

——————–

Potty training… Oy!

But in the end, he rocked it

Only took two days

——————–

I niño grande!

I pipí en orinal

I wash my manos

——————–

Right next to the dogs

He sits and stays for a treat

Of frozen green beans

IMG_6881

Rocky and Sunny

Put up with so much from him

He really loves them

——————–

First year of preschool

Friends, learning, and non-stop fun

Absolute success

IMG_5789

“Don’t wash my pelo”

Yet he can spend hours swimming

With eyes wide open

——————–

His broccoli speaks

In its own deep, funny voice

Before getting chomped

IMG_6880

Starts with a timer

The bedtime routine won’t fail

Five books and three songs

——————–

Before bed each night

Left cheek, right cheek, and forehead

He gives three kisses

——————–

He’s such a happy guy

Not a care in the whole world

Just as it should be

IMG_7081

Somersaults and hops

He’s a bouncing kangaroo

Giggling all the while

IMG_7212

With him as my son

Each day is a miracle

Thank you, God. Thank you.

3 rings dads day
