Three Little Leg Warmers

I have been having serious dark circles under my eyes
Like a Panda Bear
And I have been a panda bear
With serious dark circles
Who sips coffee all day long
Because I have been knitting three little leg warmers for my girls
As stocking stuffer
And since they are for Christmas
I had to hide and knit late at night
Which really tested this night owl
When we were awaiting the birth of our children
The only thing that mattered
They grow old happy and healthy

We hoped to be that wise parents
Who can teach them what's important in life

"Keeping up with the Jones"
Always sneaks into our mind
And sometimes we do too much
And take away
Something precious in life

Is giving coolest toys for Christmas really that important?
Should the amount of toys make us proud or sorry as parents?

Sometimes I want to ask me
Me in 1999

When we were soon to be parents
We had just a simplest wish
To be a happy family
Not from having many things
But having many invisible things that make life special
So as I knit and sew
I am hoping to go back in time
Be me with the simplest wish....
Who would laugh out loud for such a silly dilemma...
Who would also tell me...
Love is all we need
