A Piece of the Puzzle (a survival kit for parents)
Because you're so important in the journey of your childs life, I give you a piece of the "puzzle".( spray paint a puzzle piece gold( You get a "safety pin" for little emergencies and "lifesavers" for those big ones. The "cotton balls" are for when you can't hear yourself think, the "rubberband" to remind you to be flexible. You get a "lollipop" to help you lick your problems, a "Dumdum" for when you feel that way. A "tootsie roll" will help you roll with the punches, a "penny" so you'll never be broke. You'll need a "starburst" for energy, a "fireball" for when you're burned out. A "crayon" will help to color your days, a "paperclip" to hold things together. A "piece of golden cord" will help tie things together when it seems everything is falling apart. The "rope" will remind you if you get to the end of yours, just tie a knot and hang on. Most of all you need "marbles" to replace the ones you've lost and a "jewel" because you're as valuable as any precious stone!
