He told his mommy, my very beautiful daughter, that I was probably the most beautiful woman in the world. I love this boy!! (although he may need his eyes checked) : )


My Hairdresser Is Only Five

He loves to comb my hair
And fix it in such a way
That I find it difficult
To wear it out in the day
But that is never a problem
Because I love him so
He is my Joey Joey
My grandson don't you know
With eyes that change in color
From green to blue to gray
He is a handsome fellow
Who loves to pretend and play
His curly hair is forever
Calling all females to his side
And those long dark lashes
I really must confide
That as his grandmother
I am his greatest fan
He is my five-year-old sweetheart
My sensitive little man
And now I must inform you
That this wonderful little guy
Told my daughter, his mother
I am beautiful in his eyes
Now what is a nana to do
But to let him create his style
With combs, brushes, and water
While I sit here and just smile

Kathy, your poem is so revealing..shows how much love and affection you and Joey share. It's heart-warming to read such stuff!And grannies are special women, so his eye-sight is perfect too :)

This is a jewel! It is great fun to read and tells a wonderful tale of love between grandson and grandmother. Joey knows what he talking about. Those of us who know him know that he is a serious boy and doesn't make such statements lightly. He has thought about this and tells the truth. I am proud to be his great aunt. Readers, you should know that this young man speaks like an adult and has adult ideas. He thinks he is an adult and were it not for his height, one would think he is at least a young adult. He is wise in his ways and thinks big. He also has a tender heart. And he is gorgeous. He'll probably be joining poetbay soon.
