Cherish This Time

     It is so important to read poems such as this when you are a new parent. You sometimes lose track of the real things that matter. You do your day to day things and you try your hardest just to get through the day. However, you really have to always remember the big picture. You will only have a baby for a little while so always remember to cherish every moment you can. Life goes by very quickly.

Cherish This Time
By Joanna Fuchs

So your baby is here!
What joy and what pleasure!
Now your life is expanding, 
To make room for this treasure.

A darling newcomer
To have and to hold--
His smiles are more precious
Than silver or gold.

He'll demolish your schedule
Though he's helpless and small;
He'll make his needs known,
And he'll rule over all.

See, a new parent's work
Is just never quite done,
But you'll never mind,
'Cause it's all so much fun.

When you hear his cute giggle
You'll start "aahing" and "oohing",
And he'll soon reply back
By "ga ga" and "goo gooing".

Those big innocent eyes
See a world strange and new;
To make sense of it all
He'll look only to you.

So cherish this time
Of miraculous things--
The excitement and wonder
That a new baby brings.
