This book is so sweet. If I Could Keep You Little gives us parents a reminder that although we would love to keep our children small, if we did that we would miss out on the biggest gift of all...seeing the person that they grow up to be. Watching them gain independence and use the skills that we hopefully instilled in them.
Here is an excerpt...
"If I could keep you little,
I'd decide on matching clothes.
But then I'd miss you choosing
Dots on top and stripes below
If I could keep you little
I'd cut your bread in shapes.
But then I'd miss you finding
"Hey! I like ketchup with my grapes!"
My little one enjoyed the book and so did mama *wink*
