Last week i was looking for ideas for fathers day gifts and i found a lovely poem that i could do with painted footprints with the LOs, something about footprints or footsteps, but now i cant find it! It was quite short and simple.
Can anyone help please?!

Is this it?

Walk a little slower, Dad
Cos I am only small.
I’m following in your footsteps,
And I don’t want to fall.

Someday when I’m all grown up.
You’re what I want to be;
Then I will have a little child,
Who’ll want to follow me.

And I would want to lead just right,
And know that I was true;
So, walk a little slower, Dad,
For I must follow you.

Or this one?

Daddy, daddy I have made, Prints of my little feet.
Then you can remember when, I was so small and sweet.

I will grow and baby days will all be in the past,
But you can know my love for you, Daddy will always last.

I have just been reading a poem that my uncle wrote which was read at his funeral and it bought a tear to my eye, thinking of how upset his daughter still is 2 1/2 years on, and the poor relationship my dad has with my brother and I, this has just made me cry!!!!:blush:

Might use the first one for my littlest mindee whose dad will be having his first fathers day!

thank you for sharing.
