Hi Parents…I have arrived!
Did you know that God made me. He knows all about me. He knows my name, my personality and character, who I am and who I will be, and He loves me. He loves me enough that He gave me to you to look after me and He knows that you are exactly right for me. Sorry if all this responsibility overwhelms you a little. God knows that He has given you a big job looking after me and He says He will hang around and help you out. Sometimes my needs will get more attention than your needs. My tummy will hurt when you want to sleep, or I will have a ‘diaper’ (ugh) just when you get me dressed up to go out, or…you get the picture. I’m going to be pretty helpless for awhile. I’ll need you lots. Thanks for being there for all that stuff. Then there will be the times when I just need YOU, just need the warm fuzzy of being cradled safely in your arms. Thanks for being there for me (the big guys call it being emotionally available). Thanks for letting me bond and attach emotionally, my heart to your heart. That makes my heart sing, and funny, when my heart sings it makes your heart sing (I think they call it endorphins), and both of us feel better.
