Our kids grow up so fast. Sometimes I want to tell time to freeze so I can enjoy my son more. I wish there was a time travel machine so I could go back and cherish my son as an infant even more. I was mostly dazed during the first few months, being a new Mom and all!

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
& one day you’ll miss,
Having a chocolate face to wipe.
Yo 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 downt he road,
When my little legs can’t walk that far,
So cherish every cuddle,
Remember them all,
Because one day, Mummy.
I won’t be this small.

This poem about cherishing your kids totally slays me. I wish I could go home now and play puzzles or cars with him instead of finishing up some reports.

I love you, Timmy!!! You’ll always be my baby!!!

    Gosh! This really made me cry. Just recently, my daughter turned 7 and things are really different now with her than, say, 3 years ago. I wish they wont grow up as fast.

      I get taken aback when it hits me that my son is turning 5 this year. Too fast, time, you’re flying too fast!

    aaawwww…. this poem is really wonderful. Although I have 2 teenagers already, I could still give them kisses and still say I LOVE YOU, and they are not embarrassed by it. With regards to my youngest, despite and inspite her being so makulit and all, at the end of the day I could still give her hugs, kisses and still say I LOVE YOU, as one of my relative priest told me, YAAN MO NG MAKULIT YANG SI AMAYA KASI ISANG ARAW ANG KAKULITAN NIYAN ANG MAMIMISS MO… and come to think of it, oo nga naman, after reading this poem… :)

      Oo nga eh. When Timmy’s being makulit and all, I really stop myself from trying to get mad. Pag kinukulit niya ako, I try to enjoy it as much as I can na. Kasi baka in a few years, ibang girl na kukulitin niya. Waaaah!

    There are days when I think about my “office days,” but I quickly realize that all that I have now, being there for my youngest son, really being there — it’s a luxury for some parents and something I missed with my two older ones. I am now at my best when I’m around him. I’ve shed so much and gained so much — in meaningful ways. Now my little one is wiggling out of the youngster years…thank God I embraced the luxury of just being there.

    I must say it was hard to find your site in google.
    You write interesting posts but you should rank your blog higher in search engines.
    If you don’t know how to do it search on youtube:
