Hi. Welcome. I created CookieMOMster because when I was a first time mom 6 years ago cookies saved me. I was in a whirlwind of sleepless nights, crying and baby drool. I ate lots of cookies and began writing. Writing had been my passion since I was young and I had forgotten how much it meant to me. It's funny how these little lives come into your life and cause chaos but at the same time allow you to re-discover yourself. Thank you to Konrad and Koby for that. So sit down have a cookie and read. I hope you enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy writing. Thanks for visiting. I'm glad you stopped by.

Balloons to Heaven

It's Bampa's birthday

What color balloons would you like?
red for me
blue for me
green for daddy
yellow for mommy

The peaceful blue of the sky
The warmth of the sun

In a circle we stand
each with our colored balloon


Balloons to Heaven!

they drift upward
we watch them
they float up

Balloons to Heaven


  1. Happy Birthday to Bampa! What a wonderful, heartfelt tradition to share with the boys! Beautifully written, Kim!

  2. Beautiful {{{{HUGS}}}}
    Love, Linda (until I figure out how to post my pic and name)

  3. A beautiful creative tribute. Nice job - I feel the heavens are smiling down at you!

  4. You've inspired me. Been thinking of trying to write a poem for my mother - 19 years this May 21. Now I know I will do it. Thanks, Kim!

  5. Beautiful - full of joy and sentiment. What is it about watching balloons go to heaven that fill us with such peace and promise?

    Watched 150 go up Sunday. I sure wish I had brought my camera. It was fantastic.

    Love this tradition!
