"...A mother held her new baby and very slowly rocked him back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. And while she held him, she sang:
I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living
my baby you'll be…"
Have you read this book? I use to read this book to Kid1 all the time. It was given to me at his baby shower, TWENTY long and short years ago. When he was little I thought "how could I ever not like him?" As he grew, I soon realized that it is EASY to dislike the choices that a child makes, but also EASY to always love the child. I LOVE this child, he IS my baby. I haven't always liked his choices but I have always LOVED him.
It's a good book. I highly suggest it.
