On Friday night, my husband shooed me out the door for some much needed alone time. I had been in the house all week with sick children and he could sense my need for a night out.
Whenever I get this sort of opportunity I am instantly excited to go to two of my favorite places, Target and TJ Maxx. Have I told you before how much I heart these stores? If I haven't I am now. Target is the place to be. I find everything there. Things I need and some things I may not "need" but want and love. TJ Maxx is not as great as Target, but has many wonderful qualities in herself. This sweet book is a perfect example. You never go to TJ Maxx because you need something. You go for the hunt. The opportunity to find something amazing. On this particular trip I found two amazing things. "You Are My I Love You" was one of those things. I was minding my own business headed towards the furniture section when this book caught my eye. The title was precious and the story inside was even better. So I snatched up two. I couldn't help myself. One is for my children to enjoy and one is for the next person who has a baby.
The story is so adorable I was wondering if I could share it with you?
I knew you wouldn't mind so here goes...
"I am your parent; you are my child.
I am your quiet place; you are my wild.
I am your calm face; you are my giggle.
I am your wait; you are my wiggle.
I am your carriage ride; you are my king.
I am your push; you are my swing.
I am your audience; you are my clown.
I am your London Bridge; you are my falling down.
I am your carrot sticks; you are my licorice.
I am your dandelion; you are my first wish.
I am your water wings; you are my deep.
I am your open arms; you are my running leap.
I am your way home; you are my new path.
I am your dry towel; you are my wet bath.
I am your dinner; you are my chocolate cake.
I am your bedtime; you are my wide awake.
I am your finish line; you are my race.
I am your praying hands; you are my saying grace.
I am your favorite book; you are my new lines.
I am your night-light; you are my star shine.
I am your lullaby; you are my peekaboo.
I am your good-night kiss;
you are my I love you."
Whew! I hope you enjoyed.
Now go hug your "I Love You"
