A poem for my daughter when she's older
(currently four going on fourteen!)
Your best friends were Giraffe and Teddy?
The sound of a car in the driveway was met with shrieks of excitement?
Your Barbie dolls sat and listened as you taught them new things?
And choosing a movie involved deciding between Barney and The Wiggles?
Heavy rain meant puddles to jump in?
Getting a bonus would mean receiving an extra sticker?
And fast cars were the ones being raced along the kitchen floor?
Pedicures were a chance to choose the most sparkly nail polish?
And your biggest worry was what would be for dinner that night?
Forget not these precious moments, little one.
