First Day Of School

First Day Of School


FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL

I used to be little, but not anymore.

Tomorrow I'll get up and walk out the door.

I'm going to school--it's the first time for me.

It's great to be big, but I'm scared as can be.

My tummy's in knots. Do you want to know why?

I'm thinking that maybe, just maybe, I'll cry.

When Dad leaves the school and I'm there all alone,

I'm thinking that maybe I'll want to go home.

But wait--Mommy said I'll play lots of new games,

and meet lots of friends--I can learn all their names.

The first day of school, oh there's so much to do!

There's painting and books and a big playground, too.

I used to be little, but not anymore.

Tomorrow I'll get up and walk out the door.

I'm going to school--it's my first day, you see.

It's great to be big! I'm so glad that I'm me!

AS I GROW

Please understand I am growing up and changing very fast.
It must be difficult to keep pace with me, but please try.

Please reward me for telling the truth.
Then I am not frightened into lying.

Please tell me when you make mistakes and what you learned from them.
Then I can accept that I am okay, even when I blunder.

Please pay attention to me and spend time with me.
Then I can believe that I am important and worthwhile.

Please help me explore my unique interests, talents and potential.
In order for me to be happy, I need to be me.

Please do the things you want me to do.
Then I have a good, positive model.

Please tell me by your words and actions that you love me.
Then I will feel loveable and will be able to love myself and others.
