The Precious Age of 6

You came after many prayers for a healthy baby girl,
I knew not of how your presence would completely change my world.
I wanted to be better – you deserved only the best;
So I raised my standards and put them to the test.
Only a perfect mommy my princess would have;
perfect frilly pink outfits and only bows that matched.
Healthy dinners each night and a life full of riches,
I swore to let go of my past failures and mend those wounds with stitches.
You are my pride and everything that I now live for;
No matter how much I accomplish for you, I’ll always want to do more.
I may not be able to be the perfect mommy like I’d originally planned,
but I promise to always protect and honor you the best I possibly can.
Yesterday marked you turning the precious age of 6,
it’s amazing how fast the years fly by-how quickly that clock ticks.
I look forward to many, many years alongside you to come,
My daughter, my life…my legacy; my perfect little one.
I love you Callie Jo!
