Moving between the legs of tables and of chairs, rising or falling, grasping at kisses and toys, advancing boldly, sudden to take alarm, retreating to the corner of arm and knee, eager to be reassured, taking pleasure in the fragrant brilliance of the Christmas tree.
Toys tossed on the floor Hand prints on the wallSlamming of the doorAnd footsteps down the hallBoxes made into towersCovers turned into tentsVoices get a lil' louderGuide lines get a lil' bentBoxes now go untouchedCovers in a folded pileSilence never was so muchGuide lines never been n' awhileDid we waste our time a wayWe once had back thenNever taking time to playTo 'oft we walked right past themNow they're grown and gone The house stands still and neatOnly memories left to carry onOh, how our hearts do often weepWould we change time if we could?Would we play a bigger part?Did we get too wrapped up in the world?For now we're left with justMemories of the heart.
Make a memory with your children, Spend some time to show you care;
Toys and trinkets can't replace those Precious moments that you share. Money doesn't buy real pleasure, It doesn't matter where you live; Children need your own attention, Something only you can give. Childhood's days pass all too quickly, Happy memories all too few; Plan to do that special something, Take the time to go or do. Make a memory with your children, Take the time in busy days; Have some fun while they are growing, Show your love in gentle ways.

Each home has been reduced to the bare essentials -- to barer essentials than most primitive people would consider possible. Only one woman's hands to feed the baby, answer the telephone, turn off the gas under the pot that is boiling over, soothe the older child who has broken a toy, and open both doors at once. She is a nutritionist, a child psychologist, an engineer, a production manager, an expert buyer, all in one. Her husband sees her as free to plan her own time, and envies her; she sees him as having regular hours and envies him.
The intellect is a very nice whirligig toy, but how people take it seriously is more than I can understand.
O Polly, you might have toyed and kissed, by keeping men off, you keep them on.
Man is the one who desires, woman the one who is desired.
This is woman's entire but decisive advantage. Through man's passions, nature has given man into woman's hands, and the woman who does not know how to make him her subject, her slave, her toy, and how to betray him with a smile in the end is not wise.
