For My Daddy

I am a cry baby and this little poem for my baby’s father made me sob uncontrollably. I am grateful for his support, amazing love and attention.

My own words were not enough to express my gratitude so I asked my little one to help me say “thank you” to Daddy.

For My Daddy

I know it’s your hand when you touch Mommy’s tummy
She laughs so hard when you say something funny
Or something silly like, “Baby … this is Big Brother”
As I smile at the touch and the voice of my Father


Mommy’s heart beats faster when you’re around
I kick and move at your every sound
It makes me glad when she’s always happy
Can’t wait for the day when you’ll be changing my nappy.

I dream of the day when I’ll meet you Dad
Although leaving Mommy’s tummy makes me sad
Then I think of bath time and family fun
And falling asleep on your chest when its done

I know that you love me and how much you care
Mommy says you work hard to make my life rare
I want to say thank you for all you have done
So this is my promise to love you like none

Now it’s time for my nap inside Mommy’s tummy
Before I forget … she said that you’re yummy
What does that mean? I hope you’re not toast
Happy Father’s Day Daddy, I love you the most”

The End….
