"Sometimes I might upset you
Just because I'm small
By leaving fingerprints of mine
On a table, chair or wall.
But everyday I grow a bit
And I'll be big one day
When all my tiny fingerprints
Have long been cleaned away
So keep these prints of my two hands
To help you to recall
Just how big my fingers were
That time when I was small."- Anonymous

"Here's a happy hug a bunch
Wrap it around and feel the crunch
May smiles and kisses come your way
With lots of love on the Mother's Day."- Anonymous
