I've watched as you've grown from a far and up close. They said you can't do this your to young. I said watch me. Diaper, toys and beds i worked day and night for.

January 29th was quiet a night. Your first night in this world. , Nurses, doctors, family and friends said you just cant do it. Your to young. I said Watch Me!

First words, crawling, and first steps. Your into everything. Im pulling my hair out. Friends, family, and neighbors said your to young . I said watch me.

Your six years old, with brother and sisters. I'm alone tired and scared. I say i can't do this I'm to young you say remeber momma, watch me.

Your nine years old climbing a tree. I walk up to visit you and say you can't do that your to small. You smile and say watch me.

Your thirteen and i come to visit. Your working with your grandpa. I say son you should be out playing not working. You smile and say watch me.

Now your seventeen and saying i want to be a Marine and a doctor. Im smileing from ear to ear and saying i know I've been watching you.
