Love That Boy

Today is my little guy's 6th birthday. In another few weeks he'll be starting grade 1 and will no longer be at home with me during the mornings. While I've joked in the past that I can't wait to have both kids in school full time, the reality is that I am sad to see this chapter of my life end. He is the most interesting, kind, inquisitive, funny and cuddly little guy. I hope he never changes!

Love That Boy


Love that boy,
like a rabbit loves to run
I said I love that boy
like a rabbit loves to run
Love to call him in the morning
love to call him
"Hey there, son!"

He walk like his Grandpa,
Grins like his Uncle Ben.
I said he walk like his Grandpa,
And grins like his Uncle Ben.
Grins when he’s happy,
When he sad, he grins again.

His mama like to hold him,
Like to feed him cherry pie.
I said his mama like to hold him.
Like to feed him that cherry pie.
She can have him now,
I’ll get him by and by.

He got long roads to walk down
Before the setting sun.
I said he got a long, long road to walk down
Before the setting sun.
He’ll be a long stride walker,
And a good man before he done.
