In real estate we are ALWAYS making impressions with everyone we come in contact with. But some of the most important ones that are "watching" are the little ones, whether from our own families or children in general.
Little Eyes Are Watching
I've always liked this version of this poem. Targeted at fathers, it could easily be about mothers, or all of us in our relation to children and the HUGE impact we have on them.
The author is Edgar Guest.
There are little eyes upon you
and they're watching night and day.
There are little ears that quickly
take in every word you say.
There are little hands all eager
to do anything you do;
And a little boy who's dreaming
of the day he'll be like you.
You're the little fellow's idol,
you're the wisest of the wise.
In his little mind about you
no suspicions ever rise.
He believes in you devoutly,
holds all you say and do;
He will say and do, in your way
when he's grown up just like you.
There's a wide-eyed little fellow
who believes you're always right;
and his eyes are always opened,
and he watches day and night.
You are setting an example
every day in all you do;
For the little boy who's waiting
to grow up to be like you.
