Movement is at the very core of how children develop intellectually, emotionally, socially, and of course, physically. Here at Moving Smart we foster children's naturally move-to-learn style while helping parents and teachers understand the comprehensive benefits of all that wiggling!

That's why we say "A Moving Child is a Learning Child."

A DAY LIKE NO OTHER


Every once in a while, a perfect day comes along. And what makes it perfect is you know it while you're in it.

That was yesterday.


Sipping tea by the window,
Seemed an ordinary start,
To a day like no other,
Sure to live in my heart.
 
To be born on this day,
On a day like no other,
A grandson, a nephew,
A new baby brother.
 
My oldest is Mummy,
To my Princess of Joy.
And hours from now,
A new baby boy.
 
Will she be alright? Will he be OK?
I worry a worry in my moms-only way.
 
The house is now stirring,
They're up from their beds,
The silence retreats.
The giggling spreads.
 
Big sister-to-be,
And her Auntie Lu,
Already at play,
So pure and so true.
 
Today is the day,
Bob the Builder arrives!
The two year old cheers,
Awaiting her prize!
 
But wait we must do. We must wait, wait, wait, wait.
What to do when you're two, and the waiting has weight?

Cupcakes. Yes, cupcakes!
That's what we'll do!
But we're all out of purple,
So let's make them blue.
 
But cupcakes alone,
Don't seem quite enough.
A cake and a card,
Now that's the right stuff.
 
We mixed up the cupcakes
And licked the big spoon.
Then right to the oven,
They'll be ready soon.
 
Now the paints and the paper to make his first card.
(Are they forgetting that waiting is hard?)
 
Next, the blue icing.
The two year old grins.
Aunt Lu Lu has sprinkles,
All over her chin.
 
At last, we are ready.
Nothing's left to be done.
When the message arrives...
 
My girl has a son.
 
A granny, an auntie,
And a brand new big sister,
Jump up and down,
And twist like a twister!
 
My girl is alright. Her boy is OK.
The tears wash my moms-only worries away.
 
For born on this day,
A day like no other,
A grandson, a nephew,
A new baby brother.

Welcome, Jacob. Want a cupcake?

Love,

Granny Gill, Auntie Lu Lu, and Big Sister Caitlin

    What beautiful children! I love the poem too. I'd love to share it with my daughter. Is it ok with you if I print it out? Congratulations on the new grandson. I once believed the greatest gift was a son or daughter; then I had a grandson, and a granddaughter. I always knew I would love them dearly--I just wasn't prepared with how they share the same spot as my own children. It's amazing how your heart grows to hold them all.
    Thank you for sharing your happiness.

  5. Thank you thank you for sharing this with us at Rub Some Dirt On It! What a wonderful way to remember such an important day. You remind me of my mom, who had to pull over and throw up on the way to the hospital when I was in labor-she was so anxious for me! And the photos are a joy. Congratulations!
