For Emmy, at Age 10

I miss:
Teddy bears and Blue’s Clues.
“Mommy, can you tie my shoes?”
Sticky fingers.
Piggy toes.
“Are we there yet?”
“Got your nose!”

When I look into your eyes I see
The woman that you’ll grow to be
As you start to venture out into the world.
You’ll always be your mama’s baby girl.

Aww, Mary... this is so sweet and dear. I, too have a daughter (now 12) and can definitely relate!

Another Mary, this is sweet. They grow up too fast, but each age has its joys.
