Twenty minutes to go and I go and pick you up.
I never took it for granted and I was always excited and happy.You’re the cutest and sweetest and loveliest of all children,
and so are all the children. Why are they not more treasured?
Why shouldn’t they be this society’s focus?
Packages to be handed over,
Elements that make it difficult to work,
Something you get money for to give to someone else to look after.
I have seen children littler than my toddler (now 5) was here,
Be dropped off at 7 and picked up at 6 pm.
Mine is lucky she gets picked up at 5,
but if my husband worked further away, it’s be 6 as well.
How is that a good system? How is that fair?
How is it that they cannot see, the relationship between a dispatched childhood and an unhappy adulthood?
I can’t wait to pick you up little one.
Look how cute you were.
