I'm trying so hard
To be really good,
And do all the things
I know that I should.
But, I'm just a kid, Mom,
I'm messy and slow,
I don't eat my veggies,
And I'll clean my room, I know!
And I don't pick my toys up,
And I don't like my bath,
I'm trying to learn my spelling,
And I need help with my Math.
So, you're stuck with me, Mom,
And I'm a lot of work, I know.
But I'm sure that you will help me
As I learn new things and grow.
I won't always be so messy.
Some day I might be neat.
And then I won't hide my veggies
Every time I eat!
My room might end up tidy,
I won't complain about a bath,
Some day I'll teach you how to spell
And I'll be a genius at my Math.
But that might take a long, long time,
Cause, I'm still a kid you see.
I've got to grow up for a while,
Then I'll make you proud of me.
So, thanks for understanding,
Like Mothers always do,
And for taking me the way I am
I will always love you.
