When You Thought I Wasn't Looking
My daughter found this and sent it to me
A message every parent should read,
because your children are watching you
and doing as you do, not as you say...

When You Thought I Wasn't Looking


"When you thought I wasn't looking,
I saw you hang my first painting on
the refrigerator,and I immediately
wanted to paint another one.

When you thought I wasn't looking
I saw you feed a stray cat, and I learned
that it was good to be kind to animals.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I saw you make my favorite cake for
me and I learned that little things
can be the special things in life.

When you thought I wasn't looking
I heard you say a prayer, and I knew
there is a God I could always talk to
and I learned to trust in God.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I saw you make a meal and take it to a
friend who was sick, and I learned that
we all have to help take care of each other.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I saw you give of your time and money
to help people who had nothing and I
learned that those who have something
should give to those who don't.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I felt you kiss me good night
and I felt loved and safe.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I saw you take care of our house and
everyone in it and I learned we have
to take care of one another.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I saw how you handled your
responsibilities, even when you didn't
feel good and I learned that I would
have to be responsible when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I saw tears come from your eyes and
I learned that sometimes things hurt,
but it's all right to cry.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I saw that you cared and I wanted
to be everything that I could be.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I learned most of life's lessons that
I need to know to be a good and
productive person when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I looked at you and wanted to say,
"Thanks for all the things I saw when
you thought I wasn't looking."
