Hey boys and girls, I have a secret for you,
It’s about the everyday things that all mammas do.
When mamma tickles your feet and your little toes,
When funnily she starts to twitch her nose;
When she starts to ruffle the hair on your head
And dances with you on top of the bed;
Whenever she makes you a chocolate milkshake
And the two of you laugh till your bellies ache;
When mamma kisses you every morning and night,
And when you are scared and she holds you real tight;
Through all the breakfasts and lunches and dinners she makes,
With all the puddings and cookies and cakes that she bakes;
Whenever she takes you for a pretend ride on her broom,
Even when she scolds you and then softly cries in her room;
It’s in all these little things that she does for you,
That mamma’s secretly telling you that she loves you!!
5 ways to deal with negative people in your life.
