Kids would never wash behind
ears or between their toes.
They'd never put their stuff away
or hang up all their clothes.
They'd never think to put
their jackets on when they go out.
They'd never eat one single solitary
They'd never get to bed on time
or turn lights out behind them.
They'd never have good manners or
at least they'd never mind them.
No, we never would grow up
as well as we most often do,
without all the kind of help and love
from awesome Moms like you.
