Toddler's Creed

If I want it, it's mine.
If I give it to you and change my mind later, it's mine.
If I take it away from you, it's mine.
If I had it a little while ago, it's mine.
If it's mine, it will never belong to anybody else, no matter what.
If we are building something together, all the pieces are mine.
If it looks just like mine, it's mine.

Bedtime Prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep
These hands I'll count instead of sheep
And remember all the friends I made
When at Miss Laurie's house I played.

Sick Child

Mary Had little lamb, she also had the flu.

Then the children in our day care will be happier and healthier too!

A Child Lives What He Learns

If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy.
If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight.
If a child lives with shame, he learns to feel guilty.
If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement, he learns confidence.
If a child lives with praise, he learns appreciation.
If a child lives with fairness, he learns justice.
If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith.
If a child lives with approval, he learns to like himself.
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, he learns to find love in the world.

Mary Had A Little Cold

Mary had a little cold, but wouldn't stay at home..
and every where that Mary went
The cold was sure to roam.
It wondered into Molly's eyes and filled them full of tears
It jumped from there to Bobby's nose and then to Jimmy's ears.
It painted Annie's throat bright red and swelled poor Little Johnny's head
Dora had a fever and a cough put Jack to bed
The moral of this little take, is very quickly said
Mary could have saved l lot of pain
with just one day in bed!

As I Grow

Please understand I am growing up and changing very fast.
It must be difficult to keep pace with me, but please try.
Please reward me for telling the truth.
Then I am not frightened into lying.
Please tell me when you make mistakes and what you learned from them.
Then I can accept that I am okay, even when I blunder.
Please pay attention to me and spend time with me.
Then I can believe that I am important and worthwhile.
Please help me explore my unique interests, talents and potential.
In order for me to be happy, I need to be me.
Please do the things you want me to do.
Then I have a good, positive model.
Please tell me by your words and actions that you love me.
Then I will feel loveable and will be able to love myself and others.
