 Sayings About Children:  H   



He held the bouquet in a tightly clenched fist
A wilted and droopy yellow
A room full of blossoms I wouldn't exchange 
For the pride shown by that little fellow

Not lilacs or daisies, gardinias, not orchids
No flowers - cultivated or wild
Can equal a bouquet of spring dandelions 
Handpicked by an innocent child

 Sayings:  I   



I don't want my children to be what I want them to be. I want them to become everything God created them to be.


I gave birth to you, but you came with no instructions. All I knew was that I loved you long before I saw you. I know I made some mistakes and for that I am sorry, but I was doing the best I could with what I knew. Everything I did for you, I did from love. You are my child, my life, my dreams for tomorrow. I will always love you and there is nothing that could ever destroy my love for you.


I like to walk with Grandpa and Grandma
Their steps are short like mine
They don't say, "Now hurry up"
They always take their time

I like to walk with Grandpa and Grandma
Their eyes see things like mine do... 
Wee pebbles bright, a funny cloud
Half hidden drops of dew

Most people have to hurry 
They do not stop and see 
I'm glad that God made Grandpa and Grandma
Unrushed, and young like me


I may not be perfect, but when I look at my children I know that I got something in my life perfectly right.


I will hold you tight, support you, guide you, teach you, hug you, protect you and love you with all my heart and Soul. I am your parent. Since the day you were born and until I draw my last breath, all that I am is yours.


I will... 
Let them be little. 
Fill their hearts with laughter. 
Help them grow wings. 
Nurture their sense of wonder. 
Inspire them to believe. 
And love them like there is no tomorrow.

I will let them be little, fill their heart with laughter, help them grow wings, nurture their sense of wonder, inspire the to believe.. - Spiritual Quotes To Live BySophie, Amy & Joey (2014)

I won't always cry Mummy 
When you leave the room 
And my supermarket tantrums 
Will end too soon  

I won't always wake, Daddy 
For cuddles through the night 
And one day you will miss 
Having a chocolate face to wipe

You won't always wake to find my foot 
Is kicking you out of bed 
Or find me sideways on your pillow 
Where you want to lay your head 

You won't always have to carry me  
In asleep from the car 
Or piggy-back me down the road 
When my little legs can't walk that far

So cherish every cuddle 
Remember them all 
One day, Mummy and Daddy 
I won't be this small


If you can light the spark of curiosity in a child, they will often learn without any further assistance.


It takes a big heart to shape little minds.


It's the little memories that will last a lifetime.

 Sayings About Children:  U   



Until you've...  
Counted little fingers 
Counted little toes  
Held a little hand  
Kissed a little nose  
Soothed a little tummy  
Read to little ears  
Powdered a little booty 
Wiped away little tears...
You haven't known love
