Tiny fingerprints on the wall

Running in the park,

Creating mud pie,

A tent in the bedroom,

Toothpaste in the sink,

Clothes under the bed

Tiny toes running in the sand

A monster under the bed!

Toys on the floor,

Grass stains on the knees,

Milk mustaches,

Dishes of Mac and Cheese,

Clay on the floor,

Mud in the tub,

Sleepy children in P.J.'s

Hugs and kisses,

Oh, children, how I love you!

In my heart I will always cherish

These moments as I watch you grow.
