To the keepers of the band-aids with trains in purse pockets. To the bedtime story-tellers, shirt menders, coat checks. To the dawn-patrol chefs and the bad-day fixers and the peacemakers in the play room. To the hand-holders and the owwie kissers and the stained-dress wearers and those who wake first and sleep last.

To the wait-up-all-nighters and try-not-to-worriers and the nurturers of passions all – to the time tellers, memory collectors, masters of tucking in bed-sheets.
