Mommy’s Hug

Print Share
    My mommy baked a cake today,
    But Mommy didn’t hug me.
    She made some puppets for a play,
    But Mommy didn’t hug me.
    She washed the dishes, clothes, and walls.
    She picked up papers, shoes, and dolls.
    She made my lunch and answered calls …
    But Mommy didn’t hug me.
    When nap time came, she tucked me in,
    But Mommy didn’t hug me.
    She saw a tear run down my chin,
    And then my mommy hugged me!
    She tickled, kissed, and hugged me tight.
    I hugged her back with all my might,
    And that made everything all right.
    I’m glad my mommy hugged me.
