On the eve of turning three

How did you grow so big, my girl?
How did you get so tall?
How did you learn the words you
know to say the things you do?

How will I manage, my girl,
as you grow into a woman?
How will I cope if a day passes
without your arms around me?

However you change,
whoever you become,
I will always be here.
Your mom.


  1. Found you on twitter... I have an almost three year old and a 2 month old. I'm always amazed when he says a new word or understands a concept that I know I didn't explain to him. It's hard to see them grow up so fast!

  2. So nice. Kiernan turns 3 in a month today - it's hard to even fathom!! At least he's still willing to sit and cuddle with me now, I have a feeling that won't last nearly as long as I'd want it to ;)

  3. lovely...
