Dirty Hands



Bigger little boy hands, with dirt under his nails,
Bringing mama presents of flowers, frogs and snails,
Those hands of his, though dirty, are growing up so fast,
So Mama treasures the gifts, and hopes these moments last.

That is beautiful! It captures the essence of parenting small children that don't stay small long enough!

and if there's dirty hands,there's a set of dirty feet that carried him all around gathering the treasures for you. Love the shot!
