To Lisa, On Your Sweet 16

STORY:

My niece is turning 16! I can't believe it - she's grown so fast. I was the Godmother at her baptism and I still see her as that cute little girl. She's been through many phases but has always remained sweet. Although she's a normal teenager, changing favorite bands often and trying to stay cool and current, she would still admit to liking certain childhood things (see list provided). She was even a little "goth" at one point, but that passed, too. Important things in her life: Her family, her close friends, her boyfriend of 2 years and music (she likes to play guitar). Also, she will be starting hairdressing school at the end of this year and had a summer job in a hair salon. I would love to present her with a clever poem that incorporates all of these elements so that she can read it at her party and have a good laugh.

POEM:

 

As a playful little girl, you never seemed to stop
Dancing with your Blankie and little Baby Bop
I can still see that child in you once in a while
I’m so glad you haven’t outgrown that goofy smile
 
I remember when the Spice Girls were your fave
Admitting you like them now would be pretty brave
You improved your taste slightly over the years
And later became a big fan of Britney spears
 
Then came your dark phase and all things Emo
(Although you secretly still enjoyed Finding Nemo)
You discovered Good Charlotte and couldn’t get enough
Trying to understand you then was a little tough
 
Deep down you were sweet, though you acted like a grouch
I was happy knowing you still liked the Big Comfy Couch
The bands changed again, and you now liked Simple Plan
But nothing was as important when you found your special man
 
You’ve grown so much and now you’re really sure of who you are
 Your hands are full with family, friends, scissors and a guitar
Our sweet little princess has become a beauty queen
Please don’t grow up too fast and enjoy your Sweet 16!

TESTIMONIAL

The poem was a hit!! I printed it in color and framed it. She read  it out loud to the crowd and was met with giggles and laughs in the funny parts and "awwws" in the touching parts. It even brought tears to her dad's eye (my older brother). I got great comments throughout the party from her friends, her family, her boyfriend and of course the birthday girl. I believe she is going to hang it in her newly decorated bedroom. What a great keepsake for her Sweet 16! I could not have gotten her a better, more personal gift. Thank you again!! It was worth every penny - I could never rhyme like that.
