Mommy’s Hug

My mommy baked a cake today,

But Mommy didn’t hug me.

She made some puppets for a play,

But Mommy didn’t hug me.

She washed the dishes, clothes, and walls.

She picked up papers, shoes, and dolls.

She made my lunch and answered calls …

But Mommy didn’t hug me.

When nap time came, she tucked me in,

But Mommy didn’t hug me.

She saw a tear run down my chin,

And then my mommy hugged me!

She tickled, kissed, and hugged me tight.

I hugged her back with all my might,

And that made everything all right.

I’m glad my mommy hugged me.
