Sayings About Children: A
A child's life is like a piece of paper on which every person leaves a mark.

A Touch Of Love
You were six months old and full of fun
With a blink of my eye, you were suddenly one.
There were so many things we were going to do
But I turned my head and you turned two.
At two you were very dependant on me
But independence took over when you turned three.
Your third birthday, another year I tried to ignore
But when I lit the candles, there weren’t three, but four.
Four was the year that you really strived
Why, look at you now, you’re already five.
Now you are ready for books and for rules
This is the year that you go to school.
The big day came, you were anxious to go
We walked to the bus, going oh, so slow.
As you climbed aboard and waved goodbye
I felt a lump in my throat and tears stung my eye.
Time goes so fast, it’s hard to believe
That just yesterday you were home here with me.
And tomorrow, when the bus brings you home and you jump to the ground
You’ll be wearing your cap and graduation gown.
So I’m holding to these moments as hard as I can
Because the next time I look, I’ll be seeing a man.
All children behave as well as they are treated.
Along life's journey, those Souls entrusted to your care will become your greatest teachers.

Sophie & Amy (2010)
Children are one third of our population and all of our future.
Children are poor men's riches.
Children are the rainbow of life. Grandchildren are the pot of gold.
Trina with Tyler & Ben (2015)
Sayings About Children: D
Do not educate your children to be rich, educate them to be happy. So when they grow up, they'll know the value of things, not the price.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for they were born in another time.
Don't raise your kids to have more than you had, raise them to be more than you were.
Children Sayings: G
Give me a child for the first seven years and you may do what you want with him afterwards.
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
Human beings grow best with encouragement and love. Today, let every word you speak (to yourself and others) be filled with kindness.
Seth & Sandra
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.
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.
Sophie, 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 not what you leave to your children, it’s what you leave in your children.
It's the little memories that will last a lifetime.

No matter whether birth or choice
A home is blessed from above
When caring parents claim their child
A family is formed by love

Sayings About Children: O
Our children are only ever lent to us. We never know just how long we will be able to keep them for. So, kiss them, cuddle them, praise them and hold them tightly. But most of all tell them you love them.
Sayings About Children: T
The cure for boredom is curiosity... There is no cure for curiosity.
The day the child realizes that all adults are imperfect, he becomes an adolescent. The day he forgives them, he becomes an adult. The day he forgives himself, he becomes wise.
The friendship of a child is the brightest gem, set upon the circlet of society.
The heart of a child is like that of Buddha.
The laughter of a child is the light of the home.
The most precious jewels you'll ever have around your neck are the arms of your children.
Julie & Amy (2012)
There is a child inside each one of us, who comes out in front of the person we are most comfortable with.
Sayings About Children: U
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
Sayings About Children: W
Wasn't it beautiful, when you believed in everything.

What we are speaks so loudly, that our children may not hear what we say.
