I Take It Back..



..for every time I said 'just a second'
..I Take It Back..

..for every time I said 'quick bath today'
..I Take It Back..

..for every time I said 'shut the TV off'
..I Take It Back..

..for every time I said 'you can do it'
..I Take It Back..

..for every time I said 'mall walk'
..I Take It Back..

..for every time I said 'more books after naptime'
..I Take It Back..

..for every time I said 'you had a friend over yesterday'
..I Take It Back..

..for every time I said 'indoor voices'
..I Take It Back..


I should be feeding you..
I should be helping you brush your teeth..
I should be bathing you..
I should be teaching you new things..
I should be playing with you..
I should be taking you new places..


I miss you all so much
You grew up so much the last year
I don't want you to change without me
All your hugs..all your kiss
All your smiles..all your giggles

That's what I'm going to miss


Grow big..grow strong
Be kind
Open your wings
Don't look back

  6. Obviously, I haven't been here in a while. Looks like you are done nannying and starting a new career soon. So excited, but sounds like you are missing the kiddos too.

    Remember, the parents would probably be happy to have
