Happy Birthday Abby

Happy 6th Birthday to my sweet, sweet girl.
Here are 6 things that I love so much about you:
  1. You are so funny. You make me laugh so much.
  2. You love your daddy something fierce. (you have such good taste.)
  3. You are the best frog and lizard catcher this side of the Mississippi.
  4. You only want to wear comfortable pants. (I am so with you on that.)
  5. You have such a kind heart and I see you caring for others so often.
  6. You love to be outside and will spend hours in our yard looking for creatures.

I am so thankful to be your mommy and look forward to seeing the world through your 6 year old eyes.

A Marvelous Mother

To all the folks that follow “The Clark Clan” blog, there is a bit of a change this week. The site has been hijacked by husband of the blogger. You only have to follow the blog for a few weeks to see all the neat things that Teresa does and wonderful experiences she exposes our daughter Abby to. However, I wanted to let everyone know what an amazing mother Teresa truly is.

I know darn well how lucky I got,

When Teresa got hit with Cupid’s shot.

But what I really did not know,

Was when it came to mothering, she is a pro.

She teaches Abby new things every day,

And makes learning fun through lots of play.

Crafts and activities are always at hand,

You’d be amazed at all the uses for sand.

Her patience and temperament are truly great,

Even when Abby is filled with hate. J

The fun days, the tough days, she never gets fazed,

To watch her with Abby I am simply amazed.

Just watching her parent inspires me,

To be the best father I can be.

I got so darn lucky to find such a wife,

Friend and mother to share my life.

So today here’s to all you mothers out there,

Thank you Teresa for letting me share.
