I’m a retired preschool teacher and child care provider, 30 years! Mother of 2 grown children and grandmother to 3 beautiful girls and a set of twins on the way!
I was reading an article about how much time we should spend with our children and the importance of making eye contact and having face to face conversations. It inspired these words that I wanted to share from one mom to another, from a grandma to a daughter. From a parent to a parent. Live in the moment and love every minute. Time is precious and so are they.
Look at me, look into my eyes
I need you, no surprise
You’re my first connection to this world
When I arrived whether boy or girl
Play with me, hear me talk
Hold my hand while we walk
Let’s be silly, giggle, and grin
Don’t you know you’re my best friend?
Tuck me in, touch my face
You’re my connection to the human race
You’re my people, you brought me here
All I want is to have you near
Listen to me, look into my eyes
I’m your little gal or guy
I need you from dawn to dusk
You’re the one in whom I trust
I’ll be grown, before you know it
Enjoy me now, please don’t blow it
Don’t look back and have regrets
Let’s make these our best years yet!
You may think it doesn’t matter
If you listen or not to my chatter
It means so very much to me
You’re my world, don’t you see?
