When you take your baby
For a walk around town,
Talk to your baby
Be sure to put that cellphone down.
Discuss reality, hopes and dreams.
Ask questions and allow your child to answer.
If she's a toddler, read the street signs to her
As you pass them by.
Brains develop quickly in the early years.
You are your baby's parent
You have that responsibility to developand nurture her intelligence.
Don't be selfish by texting or talking on the phone.
This walk is you and your baby's time to be alone.
