Little Miss Sugar and Spice
Today little miss sugar and spice
Is all dressed up so nice,
In her mommy’s very best clothes
From top of head to tip of toes.
Before the mirror she turns and twirls,
Taking bows and fluffing curls.
Today she’s a lady, prim and neat
Looking and smelling oh so sweet.
Yesterday, she didn’t look so sweet
With mud all over her hands and feet.
Playing football was her game
And "Little Lady" was not her name.
Rough and rowdy, this little Tomboy
No dolls or jack’s were her toys.
Holding her own with brothers three
Filled her daddy’s heart with glee.
Now, I know this stage won’t last
Too soon it will be in the past.
Tomorrow she’ll forget about her toys
And she’ll dress up for the boys.
Then a young lady she will be
With best foot forward for all to see.
Miss sugar and spice will become a bride
And fill her daddy’s heart with pride.
Perhaps she’ll have a child of her own
And someday wonder, where the years have flown.
For the stages of life continue on
And before we know it, too soon it’s gone.
But memories will always last
Of golden days in the distant past.
I know she’ll remember, more than once or twice
She was her daddy’s, Little Miss Sugar and Spice.
