My Sweet Devin..Ready to Take on The World June 14, 2011
My Sweet Devin…Ready to take on the World
How eager we were when you were born. It was so exciting to watch your little personality soon develop and how you bring us so much love. We would say, “How can one little being generate so much delight, pleasure and joy”. But you have MY Sweet Devin. Time just seems to move at warp speed and we so want things to slow down.
Here at 6 months, you carried so much expression and found curiosity in everything. You were not quite sure about this little fella and just chose to admire…not touch. How I wanted to squeeze those cute little chubby cheeks of yours. Well maybe just a great big kiss….
Wished I knew what was on your mind.
- Do you like having your picture taken?
- Did you like having this rabbit so close to you? I think a sailboat would have been better…you were surely dressed the part.
- Wondering, where oh where you were and why?
One thing for sure you were calm and content.
Told you I wanted time to slow down because at a blink of an eye you are now 5 years old and just graduated from preschool. You have grown leaps and bounds…so ready to discover many new ventures. How your little mind is always thinking. You are so creative, cleaver and yes you do keep me on my toes. Lately I find I am always asking you, “Where did you hear that, learn that or know how to do that”? How advanced you are at such a young age.
We are so proud of you and I believe you are happy to be moving on. Or maybe you are thinking, yippee it is summer. Watch out everyone here I come. It is only just the beginning of great things to come.
From laughter, to pondering what kindergarten is going to be like? Devin at such a young age you are a thinker, dreamer, worrier and peaceful little soul. For this you are truly special.
Yes you are ready to take on the world but we need to remember you are little for only a short time. We need to let you be a little boy, find what you love to do, discover all sorts of new things, enjoy your friends, sports, music and most of all allow you to be YOU!! This song can remind us all how important it is to allow our kids or grandkids to just be little because they grow up way too fast.
Devin always remember that your teachers past, and present will be a huge part of your life. Some (not all) will forever leave a footprint on your soul.
Forever In My Heart
Although I'm not their mother
I care for them each day,
I cuddle, sing and read to them
And watch them as they play.
I see each new accomplishment,
I help them grow and learn.
I understand their language,
I listen with concern.
They come to me for comfort,
And I kiss away their tears.
They proudly show their work to me,
I give the loudest cheers!
No, I 'm not their mother,
But my role is just as strong.
I nurture them and keep them safe,
Though maybe not for long.
I know someday the time will come,
When we will have to part.
But I know each child I cared for,
Is forever in my heart!
I love you Devin with all my heart. You are my best buddy. Love to listen to your adventures, all your daily tales, how you love your sister, Avery (well most of time) and how you would rather be home with your family. Your love for your Mommy, Daddy, sister, and your entire family shines through your eyes. I always say, your beautiful eyes are my path to your heart. I cannot wait to see what Kindergarten and the years ahead bring to your life. You are sure to soar.
When you call me Memere my heart melts and you have made my life so special. Thanks for your hugs and kisses and just telling me you LOVE ME!!! I am so ready to be there for you all the way through.
Devin I Love you more than words can create…..Hugs always…Memere….
Thank you friends for allowing me to share….Kim
