Mommy’s Hug

    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.
