A Childcare Provider

A willing partner for working moms,
she comforts, pampers, soothes and calms.
With all the love she has to share,
she’s great to have when mommy can’t be there.
She loves to rock a fussy child,
corrects the one that gets too wild.
She hears her share of tearful pleas,
and comforts those with skinned up knees.

With little children she plays games of peek,
for bigger ones it’s hide and seek.
She is an expert at each game,
but somehow loses just the same.

She helps them learn the alphabet,
and gives them hugs when they’re upset.
She gently tucks them in their beds,
with dreamland tales for sleepyheads.

She is a true and trusted friend,
who helps them learn and play pretend.
Although she’s paid, it’s plain to see,
she serves them with a love that’s free.
