If You Give a Mom a Baby…

If you give a Mom a baby she will cry with joy and fear..

If you give a Mom a baby  it will eat, grow and snuggle into your heart…

If you give a Mom a Baby you will laugh, love and cry…

If  you give a Mom a Baby it will turn terrible two…

If you give a Mom a Baby it will become a kindergartener who is a little more independent..

If you give a Mom a Baby you will love first grade all day  school..

If you give a Mom a Baby it will learn to ride a bike, fall, cry get back on the bike and ride..

If you give a Mom a baby they turn into teenagers, they still cry and need lots of hugs…

If you give a Mom a baby they go to High School, graduate go to college and you cry and need hugs while your baby drives away…

If you give a Mom a baby they get to college and cry that same cry when you first held them, but nurture them to be brave thru the tears.

If you give a Mom a Baby they fall in love.. they meet their soul mate and you cry…

If you give a Mom a Baby they get married and start a life of their own.. you both cry and hug and cry as your baby drives away to their future.

If you give a Mom a Baby  you become a grandma and you cry as you hold that bundle of yum that started way back when two people fell in love..

If you give a Grandma a cookie she will share it with joy with our babies.

I dedicate this to my three children who are the light of my life. My husband because two people fell in love 38 years ago. I also am excited to welcome grand baby number 10 in the end of summer.

  1. I am the only Mom I knew who cried when her baby got toilet trained! Seriously! Now she lives 3,000 miles away from me & there are times I can’t STAND it!! (and I am so proud of her I could split)
    My youngest is 10… still have him underfoot (and right under my heart!)

    Great post. Always great to see you at #commenthour and elsewhere!

  2. It is amazing the journey we embark on with our children and then our children’s children. I am loving being a grandmother to my beautiful grand daughters and I look forward to having more in the future. Thank you for sharing this delightful prose.

    I’m still really early on in this process (like 2nd grade) but I’m exciting to experience everything you describe. 10 grandbabies … wow!! That’s a wonderful blessing!

    • It is a wonder filled journey. It goes so quickly. I am excited about our new grandbaby I know it will be the last little one. Our oldest granddaughter turns 10 this year. Thanks for sharing I am enjoying it.

    Aww… congrats on the coming grandbaby! 🙂

  8. As I read your post, it felt like it should be a song… ln fact, I thought you were going to say it was a translation of an old family folk song or something like that as I read through it. Beautiful! 🙂

    p.s. I popped by from #commenthour tonight! 🙂
