Six Word Fridays: For The Record

For The Record:

My daughter has changed my world.

I see things through her eyes.

A box becomes a great mystery.

And on occasion a quick snack.

The toilet becomes a toy box.

I have to run faster now.

Making sure my phone doesn’t drown.

Her humor truly makes me smile.

She comes over for some snuggles.

Gently pats me on the back.

Then gives me a head bunk.

Laughing as she quickly runs away.

My little girl is growing fast.

For the record, she’s my heart.

    My toddlers are teens now. And I still feel like you, when I don’t want to kill them. Which is frankly not very often, so when I feel it, it is a very special feeling!!!!
    Beautiful post.

    What a precious photo! I love your metaphor of a hummingbird on crack. That made me laugh. A friend of mine who has a tween wrote a blog piece this week in which she talked about how her little boy only now exists in her heart because he is different now. It’s great that you are capturing these moments in your verse.

    OK, you are really good at photography and these 6-word-poem things. I mean really good! I’m starting to get jealous 😉 Keep it up!

    So true for my son, too.
    What a poised cutie she is!

    And my goodness, thanks so much for the mention! I’m honored!

    What a great park! I loved the bits about the box and gently patting your back. Great images!

    For the record…I love this. I can’t imagine putting it into better words. They steal your heart the moment they come into the world. And I dont know that they ever give it back…or that I would ever want it back.
    Beautiful writing Mama!
