"Look at this stuff
Isn't it neat?
Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?
Wouldn't you think I'm the girl
The girl who has ev'rything?
Look at this trove
How many wonders can one cavern hold?
Lookin' around here you'd think
Sure, she's got everything.
I've got gadgets and gizmos aplenty
I've got whozits and whatzits galore
You want thingamabobs? - I got twenty
But who cares?
No big deal, I want more...
Beneath the depths of euphoria and waves of gurgling giggles that echoed the hall, sailing this three-year journey with the ever-frolicsome little Caitlin has bottled our hearts with much joy and endless happiness. Watching children grow is somewhat magical and surreal, a delightful discovery of so much contained within that petite vessel yet to unfold.
Getting to know them day by day feels like a bubbly adventure and slowly coming to terms with their witty (often daunting) antics, having a “Oh, so this is who you are!” monologue to yourselves yet still loving them ever so much more, borderless.
Watching Caitlin prance about in her tiny gold-speckled feet and blue frock in that celebration certainly left a splash of magic in the air, knowing she was merely a little mermaid swimming in the tummy and now venturing her explorations into the curious depths of what lies ahead in her adventures, called life.
In the midst of the periwinkle sparkles, pearl droplets and plethora of love her charming birthday tavern could withhold, it was so much more than just a three-year-old, our voices chime to. It was a jubilation of growth, grit and grace in human race that we raise our glasses to in merriment, to endless wonders and awe-inspiring tunnels of life in raising a generation of hopes and dreams.
...I want to be where the people are
I want to see
want to see 'em dancin'
Walkin' around on those
Whad'ya call 'em? Oh - feet
Up where they walk
Up where they run
Up where they stay all day in the sun
Wish I could be
Part of that world".
