When You Think That They’re Not Looking

Spread the love

When you think that they’re not looking,
they are taking mental note.
They watch your every action.
They watch as you emote.
They can read the arch in your brow or
recognize a blank stare.
They can tell if you are interested
or just too busy to care.
When you think they cannot hear you,
they take in every word.
Then sometimes they repeat the things
that you wish they never heard.
When you think they don’t understand,
they surprise you with what they know.
Talk to them and teach them and
help their young minds grow.
So treasure every moment and dirty sippy cup
because when you’re not looking,
they’ll suddenly grow up.
