MISS BAILEY, (A lighthearted poem for a light-hearted granddaughter)!




Miss Bailey has a way with her …that always brings a smile
She makes me want to hug her tight,….and hold on for awhile
The best thing is…she hugs me back and seems so much at ease
Our Bailey girl is just like that,….she always wants to please!

She has a very tender heart, …for babies,…dogs ,….and man
There isn’t much that she can’t do….she’ll help you if she can
I love her laugh,…it’s full of joy,…and full of mischief too
Her blue eyes dance,… and warm your heart …as she looks at you

I love it when she visits me… and locks my oven door
Then when she’s gone,…her prank lives on and makes me love her more
I reach to put my pan inside and give it a good tug…
My lips turn up and smile once more,….I think of Bailey bug

Her Grandpa likes to fish with her…out on the Carter’s pond
Together they catch fish and form,… a very special bond
They run their errands around town,…and get something to eat
Or she helps him rake the yard,….and mow, and bag, and sweep

She’s very handy that’s for sure,…she does the dishes too
Last time we gathered as a group there were quite a few
And Bailey did them all alone,…so Grand-ma-ma could rest
She did them of her own free will,…and I felt like a guest!

She may not have a sibling but her cousins are her friends
Her mom plays Nertz and Greedy,…and she never lets her win!
Her dad is very close to her,…and she to him it seems
And when she pals around with Brad her face just really beams

She likes to walk her Riley dog around the longest block
His short, short legs keep up with hers and those two have their “talk”
“How are you boy? You getting tired? You need a little drink?”
They come back home and she gets him some water from the sink

Leslie Sansone …motivates her,…. with her DVD’s
She walks three miles,… and does the stretchy band…. with skillful ease
She cleans her room and fish tank too, and then she needs a shower
And she’ll be in that steamy room for just about an hour!

She likes to text ,…and talk to friends,… from church on her cell phone
She roams the halls at Pleasantview,…which is her second home
She goes on Mission trips and works to give others a lift
This is yet another page,… of Bailey’s many gifts

She hangs with Uncle Dan outside,… when he is in the yard
She likes to listen to him sing,… and play his old guitar
She’s sixteen now,…and soon will drive if we can let her grow
“Our Father, keep her safe for us",…..and look out here below!!!!

Our 5 foot something little gal is heaven’s gift to me
I can’t forget that 4 # 9 oz. baby filled with glee
Yes, Thank you Lord for giving us our sweet dear Bailey girl
Miss Bailey we love you so much….you give our hearts a twirl!

It's cool to see others that know about Nertz. You should definitely check out http://www.playnertz.com/ , the site for the National Nertz Association. There is a bunch of interesting Nertz information, videos, and photos there AND you can play Nertz on-line for free. I recommend it to all Nertz players! So cool. =)

Oh, how sweet!!! What a thoughtful way to honor a grand-daughter!

Thank you for your sweet words on my blog. It is so easy to get caught up in the day to day of life that we forget to share it with those we love most.

Hope you have a terrific Valentine!

This is so sweet! I know your granddaughter must be as thrilled having a poem that you've written about her as you are to have your granddaughter given to you by God.
