DON'T CALL ME THE BABY-SITTER
Little children come to me for hugs and books and such. I care
for all their special needs and also fix them lunch.
I pick up toys, mop up spills, and often dry their tears.
I change their diapers, settle fights and kiss away their fears.
I tie their shoes, button coats and push them on the swing.
I really love these kids, you see, but there is just one thing.
Call me Mom or Aunt or Teacher or other names that fit,
But please don't call me the "sitter", because I never get to sit!
