An Enchanted Childhood
Once upon a time there was a mama. A mama that loved her children with her whole heart. A mama that put everything she had and more into her children. She poured her heart and soul into giving them the perfect childhood. She spent hours a day reading aloud, playing games, and going on nature walks. As she taught them, she learned. and as they grew, she grew in wisdom. When they were no longer children they looked back and smiled. This mama, my mama, is my teacher, my inspiration, and my friend. Now that we run a daycare together and I am a mama myself, I find myself doing more and more things the same way she did. And while I still have so much to learn from her and to learn for myself, I long to give my children an enchanted childhood just like the one she gave me. I guess it's just like mama, like daughter.
