♥ tiny handprints ♥

Check out what Ethan gave me for mother's day!

"Sometimes you get discouraged

Because I am so small,

And always leave my fingerprints

On furniture and walls.

But everyday I'm growing,

I'll be grown up someday,

And all these tiny handprints

Will simply fade away.

So here's a final handprint

Just so you can recall,

Exactly how my fingers looked

When I was very small."

Those are such sweet remembrances! I love to look through things that are stored and find them!

UGH this just hit me--i literally today was getting frustrated for the same reason the poem mentions--i'd dusted the table three times just to have Catherine place her sticky fingers on there again (guess i should have cleaned her fingers instead?). What a sweet and precious reminder. thanks!
