Do not read until you are all growed up 😉
Remember when you were little and I took you swimming?
Well I think you’re old enough now to know my secret
I really hate swimming more than anything in the world.
But I took you anyway because you loved to swim and get wet.
Remember when you were little and I sometime picked up spiders?
I want to tell you something about that too.
I might have looked calm but inside I was really screaming.
You wouldn’t want to be as scared as me, would you?
Remember when you were little and I ate carrots?
Well I may have told you another little lie.
You see, no matter how healthy carrots really are.
I would rather eat a yummy french fry.
Remember when you were little and we did crafts.
I’m going to be brutally honest with you now.
I really am not the creative crafty type.
But we did it so I could show you how.
Remember when you were little and we got a dog.
I thought he would eat my house and wreck my carpet.
But Daddy said all kids should have a dog so I gave in.
Buddy we called him, the perfect doggy pet.
You may have noticed I told you some teeny lies.
But I really think it was for your own good you know.
I wanted you to be free to make your own choices in life.
And have the freedom to learn and to grow.
