Dear little one...

You are growing fingernails this week.
I'm imagining your little nail-less hands
it makes me want to hold them.
Will we paint those nails together?
Will you have your dadas hands. I hope
if you are a girl you don't. He has man
hands.
Will those fingers wear rings? A wedding
ring perhaps? One day...
I will hold those hands when we cross the
road, teach those hands to draw and paint
and maybe play the violin?
Those hands will clap and dance and click
and help you to pick your nose.
Oh little one. I look forward to meeting those
hands and the little person attached to them.

love mama
xx
