A child is born it's mother coddles it to her breast. A father stands proud, smiling, dreaming of the wonders that the world will offer.
Baby grows, learns to crawl, walk and talk. A doctors visit, first shots, weighed and measured, oh how he's grown.
Without a care, baby has grown, plays in the yard, trucks and cars, dolls and mud pies, dress up, have a tea party, set up a lemonade stand.
First days of school, day care, kindergarten, first grade. Mother coddles it close to her breast, a father stands proud dreaming of the wonders the world will offer.
Doctors visit, a "well-baby" check, shots are updated, weighed and measured, oh how he's grown.
A father stands proud dreaming of the wonders the world will offer.
