When You Thought I Wasn't Looking

Kids notice a lot. They notice you when you don't know it. As a parent, the little things you do and say have a huge impact on your kids. And there is an emphasis on "do". Because what you do is what they see every day. Ever wonder what they would say, if they reminded you of what you do?



When You Thought I Wasn't Looking

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you hang my first painting on the refrigerator, and I wanted to paint another one.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you feed a stray cat, and I thought it was good to be kind to animals.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you make my favorite cake just for me, and I knew little things are special things.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I heard you say a prayer, and I believed there is a God that I can always talk to.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I felt you kiss me goodnight, and I felt loved.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw tears come from your eyes, and I learned that sometimes things hurt, but it's okay to cry.

Shhhh be silent

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw that you cared, and I wanted to be everything that I could be.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I looked - - and wanted to say thanks for all the things I saw when you thought I wasn't looking.
