Turn Around

My little girls are all grown up but I still have their sweet shoes.
 You know that song Turn Around ..."Where are you goin’ my little one, little one,Where are you goin’ my baby, my own? " That is how I felt when I unpacked the box of their clothes.

Turnaround and you’re two, 

turnaround and you’re four,

Turnaround and you’re a young girl going out of the door!

Turnaround, ( turnaround! )Turnaround 

Where are you going my little one, little one, Little dirndls and petticoats, where have you gone?

Turnaround and you’re tiny, turnaround and you’re grown,Turnaround and you’re a young wife with babes of your own!Turnaround, ( turnaround! )Turnaround and you’re a young wife . . .With babes of your own!

With tears rolling down, I wish you a sweet day

Today I am watching a two year old daughter of a friend, and I am having such fun! my Grandgirls live in Germany so I don't get tohave them here at our house very often. So, I am being "adopted Mimi (my Grandma Name) today!

  7. Di,
    This is so beautiful. My daughter Charly is getting ready to have her first baby in July. I read your post and it made me cry. I remember all those things about her growing up and now she is a young woman with her own baby girl on the way. Thanks for reminding me about those beautiful memories.
