Count Down to a Birthday!

I have been busy, busy planning our own little one's Birthday and here are some verses which I have found. I hope you enjoy them!
When I have said my evening prayer,
And my clothes are folded in the chair,
And Mother switches off the light,
I'll still be four years old tonight.

But, from the very break of day,
Before the children rise and play,
Before the greenness turns to gold,
Tomorrow, I'll be Five years old.

Five kisses when I wake.
Five candles on my cake!
* * * * * * * * * *
In heaven shines a golden star,
An angel led me from afar,
From Heaven high under to earth,
and brought me to my house of birth.

Welcome, welcome lovely day
With flowers bright and sunshine gay,
With painted birds that sing their song
And make me kind and good and strong.
* * * * * * * * * *
Someone's birthday is coming soon,
Someone who is in this room,
Our (Brooklyn) will be (Five) years old,
Shining with (her) heart of gold.
* * * * * * * * * *
The stars are watching for her birth,
A little child comes down to earth;
Angels do help her both day and night,
To fill her heart with love and light;
(Five) burning candles we did prepare,
To shine upon your birthday fair.
* * * * * * * * * *
Happy birthday dear (Brooklyn),
We sing now to you.
Happy birthday dear (Brooklyn),
May your wishes come true.
* * * * * * * * * *
We wish you a happy birthday
A joyful and celebrated birthday
To our friend _________
May she have a long, long life!

Our Rainbow Bridge Story

There are as many versions of this classic Waldorf Birthday story as there are Waldorf teachers and children. This version of the classic story we wrote for our children. This one is about our daughter Brooklyn. Please be sure to change the story to better describe your child and history!

Long ago a little fairy flew from star to star gathering light and music, which came from all around her. At each star she met beautiful Fairies who showed her the way. One day one of the fairies said, "It is time to go to the Sun." Little fairy followed to a place of warmth shining like gold. There bees and butterflies sang to her of love. The fairy lead her to the moon, clean and crisp like new snow. From the moon she saw the most beautiful sight- a place of flowers, trees, rolling oceans, and two special souls who seemed to be smiling up at her. "May I go there?" little fairy asked the Beautiful Fairy "It is time," the Fairy said. "You may use the gifts of light and music you have gathered to carry you over the rainbow bridge. There a mother and a father have been waiting for you." Little Fairy carried her gifts over the rainbow bridge to her new home on the Earth.

(At this time Brooklyn walks over the rainbow silk to come sit with us)

From the very first moment her parents saw her they loved her and they called her Brooklyn Grayce. When she was born it was a crisp Autumn evening and a million stars were smiling down on her from the sky. She was absolutely beautiful chubby and round. She nursed and nursed and fell right asleep in her mommy's arms.

And then Brooklyn was one year old she loved playing with her older brother. Peek-a-boo was one of her favorite games to play. Her hair was a beautiful goldenrod color with curls.

(light the second candle)

When she was two years old she loved to help in the kitchen, kneading bread and making her own creations. She loved pockets and pouches and filled them with the many treasures which she found.One night she stood up on the living room table and did a dance with her hand out singing the most creative of lyrics "Awtch Awtch Awtch Awtch" then she jumped onto to the couch with a gleam in her eye!

(light the third candle)

When she was three years old she loved to play outside in the leaves and build forts with her brother out back in the trees. Swinging on the Willow tree vines was her favorite thing to do. Her brother showed her how to hold on tight. Brooklyn was very excited to find out she was going to be a big sister!

(light the fourth candle)

When she was four years old she moved to a new house, where she had her own room ! Her and mama spent much time fingerknitting and making crafts. She loved going to the beach, swimming and playing in the sand. She became a wonderful artist and began to draw pictures of all of the adventures she had and like magic, in ONE day she learned to ride her bike!

(light the fifth candle)

And now Brooklyn is Five years old. She has grown strong and is very smart and helpful, and a very good friend. We are happy to know Brooklyn and to be a part of her fifth birthday.

(make a wish, blow out the candles and sing Happy Birthday)
