Do you ever look at your kids and think that they are growing up way too fast? With my youngest turning 4 next month, I think where did the time go. He was just a little baby and now he is so independent. Although I enjoy watching them grow up and learn new things, at the same time I just want to keep them from growing up. When I heard about the book If I Could Keep You Little by Marianne Richmond, I knew that I wanted to own it.
Here is a little about the book from the press release:
One of my favorite lines from the book is:
"If I could keep you little, I'd tell you stories every night. But then I'd miss you reading the words you've learned by sight."
The last few lines of the book, really sum up the mixed emotions I feel about my kids growing up: "If I could keep you little, I'd keep you close to me. But then I'd miss you growing into who you're meant to be!"
