This particular poem “I Won’t Always Cry Mummy” by Stephanie Turner really touched us. (Tissue anyone??)

Don’t miss the chance to have your say! We’re looking for parents to get involved and give their feedback on all aspects of family life. Find out more here.

I won’t always cry, Mummy,
When you leave the room,
And my supermarket tantrums,
Will end too soon.

I won’t always wake Daddy
For cuddles through the night
And one day you will miss
Having a chocolate face to wipe.

You won’t always wake to find my foot
Is kicking you out of bed
Or find me sideways on your pillow
Where you want to lay your head

You won’t always have to carry me
In asleep from the car,
Or piggy back me down the road,
When my little legs can’t walk that far.

So cherish every cuddle,
remember them all
One day Mummy
I won’t be this small

~ Stephanie Turner
