“Little children come to me
for hugs and books and such.
I care for all their simple needs
and also fix them lunch.
I pick up toys, mop up spills
and often dry their tears.
I change their diapers, settle fights,
and kiss away their fears.
I tie their shoes, zip their coats,
and push them on the swing.
I really love these kids, you see,
but there is just one thing.
Call me Mom, or Aunt, or Gayle-
those names just might fit.
But please don’t call me sitter,
because I never get to sit!”
Happy Mother’s Day (1991)
