3rd Birthday Party Poem

3rd Birthday Party Poem

My son will turn 3 tomorrow, July 20, 2012.  For the past 2 years, I’ve been designing the invitation cards to his party and was always searching the Net for nice and simple birthday poems.

It looks like 3rd Birthday Party Poems are scarce, I was having a hard time searching for poems very similar to the 1st and 2nd Birthday Party Poems (these poems have 4 rhyming lines by the way).  I guess 3rd birthday parties are not that important, no?
