You are my I Love You book

Do any of you have this book for your little ones?

You can find it on Amazon

I just love the words: 

You are my I love you

Author: Maryann K Cusimano
I am your parent you are my child
I am your quiet place, you are my wild
I am your calm face, you are my giggle
I am your wait, you are my wiggle
I am your audience, you are my clown
I am your London Bridge, you are my falling down
I am your Carrot Sticks, you are my licorice
I am your dandelion, you are my first wish
I am your water wings, you are my deep
I am your open arms, you are my running leap
I am your way home, you are my new path
I am your dry towel, you are my wet bath
I am your dinner you are my chocolate cake
I am your bedtime, you are my wide awake
I am your finish line, you are my race
I am your praying hands, you are my saving grace
I am your favourite book, you are my new lines
I am your nightlight, you are my sunshine
I am your lullaby, you are my peek-a-boo

I am your kiss goodnight, you are my I love you.
My sister shared it with me, shortly after we were officially waiting at our agency. Now I love reading it to C! I also bought a copy of it as a board book, cut it up, framed and hung several of the pages on the wall above his dresser. I was originally going to frame a different book, but this one just describes our days perfectly! :) Especially those first few weeks when at 2 AM he was definitely my "wide awake"! :-)


I got the frames at Michael's when they were 40% off. Rather than getting matting (which would have been $15-60 for each frame, I just put dark brown scrapbook paper to match the furniture behind each page of the book. That was much more reasonable at just over $1! :)

  7. I love the book! I'll have to get that on my "to get" list.
    There's another book that, when I read it, made me cry. I'll have to post it when I come across it again.
    I love great books!
