Oh my little ones, I beg you please stop growing!
Each day that passes is so bitter sweet
If I could stop time, I would stop it on today
I would have you two forever fit perfectly in my lap
And forever cradled against my chest
Because I know...
One day you will not need me to kiss your little boo-boos
There will be no more cuddles in my bed at 6:00 a.m.
You wont always want Papa and I to tuck you in at night
No singing silly little made up songs just to see you giggle
No need for bibs and burp cloths
Someday you wont want my happy potty dance
There will be no more need for a time out spot
You wont always want to have a tickle war with Papa
No spilt sippy cups or pretzel crumbs to clean up off the couch
No searching for tiny missing socks
One day there will be no cars to rescue from under the TV stand
There will be no more Sesame Street on in the background
You wont always want me to smother you in kisses
No tripping over toys I know I've already picked up a hundred times before
No more need for me to tie your shoes
Someday you wont fall asleep in my arms late at night
There will be no more pitter patter of little feet to fill this house
You wont always want us to pull you in the wagon
No little voice always following behind me asking, "Mama, what's that?"
No more tiny hand print smudges on the windows
So many things I know will someday be no more
But I take joy in knowing not everything will change
I will always be your proud Mama
You two will always be my babies
I will always love you to the moon and back
And I will always follow you anywhere
Forever loving you two,
