Quotes and poems about children

From a mailing list, again:


All kids are gifted; some just open their packages earlier than others.
~ Michael Carr

Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see.
~ John W. Whitehead

Each child is a unique and unrepeatable miracle

Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children. (Charles R. Swindoll

From the moment I saw you I knew it would be a Grand Adventure!

If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in.
~ Rachel Louise Carson

I'm as lucky as can be, for the world's best dad belongs to me

Once in a young lifetime one should be allowed to have as much sweetness as one can possibly want and hold.
~ Judith Olney

Television has changed a child from an irresistible force to an immovable object.
~ Laurence J. Peter


Two and a Half

Hold him a little longer,
Rock him a little more,
Tell him another story
(You've only told him four.)

Let him sleep on your shoulder,
Rejoice in his happy smile.
He is only two and a half
For such a little while!

My Blanket

My mom says I'm a big kid now,
Why keep this dirty old blanket.
The color is gone, the edges are rough and ragged,
Though dingy, frayed, well worn and loved,
Please don't rush me or expect us to part,
Remember my blanket warms me and my heart.
