Please, Mom and Dad...
My hands are small - I don't mean to spill my milk
My legs are short - Please slow down so I can keep up with you
Don't slap my hand when I touch something bright and pretty - I don't understand
Please look at me when I talk to you - It lets me know you're really listening
My feelings are tender - Don't nag me all day - Let me make mistakes without feeling stupid
Don't expect the bed I made or the picture I draw to be perfect - Just love me for trying
Remember I am a child not a small adult - Sometimes I don't understand what you are saying
I love you so much - Please love me just for being me - Not for the things I can do
