see how we grow!
We become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become each day.
Happy New Year, Poppy! :)
I love that poem--here is the whole thing if you want it:) I've never heard it with "nursing" before--but that will be me soon enough. BABIES DON'T KEEPMother, oh Mother,come shake out your cloth,empty the dustpan,poison the moth,hang out the washingand butter the bread,sew on a button and make up a bed.Where is the mother whose houseis so shocking?She's up in the nursery,blissfully rocking.Oh, I've grown shiftless as LittleBoy Blue (lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo).Dishes are waiting and bills are past due(pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo).The shopping's not doneand there's nothing for stewand out in the yard there's a hullabaloobut I'm playing Kanga and this is my Roo.Look! Aren't her eyes the most wonderful hue?(lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo).The cleaning and scrubbingwill wait till tomorrow,for Children grow up,as I've learned to my sorrow.So quiet down, cobwebs.Dust go to sleep.I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep......~Author Unknown ~
Hello! I would have e-mailed you, but I couldn't locate your contact information. We were just wondering if your family was at all interested in participating in a postcard swap. If so, just head on over to our blog, "Our Adventures in Education" for more info. Thanks!
I think I am going to print that up and hang it where I (and my husband) can see it everyday :). Thanks for the reminder.
