MY MESSY CHILD

As I sit and watch him play
Im fully there in every way
A pour, a stir, a splish, a splash
Im witnessing a joyful bash
Mistakes are made, and even praised 

He problem solves, my child’s amazed
Through play he learns of his self-worth
Something I’ve instilled since birth
No shame, no correction, just free to discover
The wonders of this world he will uncover
The day is done, his hands are red
There’s sand and shaving cream on his head
A passerby stares in dismay
“Oh Dear, why does he look that way?”
I smile with pride, and the comfort of knowing
That all this “mess” is helping his growing
From blue toenails to purple knees
I smile at my child.....who is so PLEASED.

  1. I love this. Mind if I copy it and hang it on my wall and pass it around? With your site name of course.
