母親節的繪本多是以孩子或第三者的立場頌揚母愛。我們找了一本以母親自述心情的繪本在這個特別的節日與大家分享→If I Could Keep You Little, by Marianne Richmond 【文:Pat @ Green Tots Club】

書中以孩子的成長為鋪成順序: 和孩子輕密的互動、 送孩子上學、晚上講床邊故事一路到參加孩子畢業典禮。

If I could keep you little with my feet.

But then I'd miss you seeing sky and clouds from your seat.

上學去~

If I could keep you little, I'd hold your hand everywhere.

But then I'd miss you knowing, "I can go....you stay there."

床邊故事~

If I could keep you little, I'd tell you stories every night.

But then I'd miss you reading the words you've learned by sight.

畢業囉~

If I could keep you little, I'd keep you close to me.

But then I'd miss you growing into who you're meant to be!

書中媽嗎在孩子成長中一路的陪伴著, 繪本裡媽嗎悄悄地在心中訴說對孩子的期許與想念。 媽媽們總是希望孩子可以永遠在自己的羽翼下受到無為不至的呵護,但是作媽媽的還是會在孩子成長地每個階段選擇漸漸放手,讓孩子自我成長、學習和體驗他們自己的人生。就像是繪本說的

 

If I could keep you little, I'd keep you close to me.  But then I'd miss you growing into who you're meant to be!

 

也許有許多媽媽因為在職場打拼永遠錯過參與孩子的活動,但我們都相信為人母們心中都有一塊角落永遠是用來思念她們的寶貝。

給在外打拼的、在家全職的、因為某種原因沒有在孩子身邊的

媽媽們 a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
