The text reads:
A Recipe for Parenthood
A dollop of devotion
A dash of dedication
A smattering of sleepless nights
And a drop of education.
A tablespoon of challenge
A teaspoon of affection
A pinch or two of worry
And a drizzle of protection.
A grain or two of patience
A soupcon of surprise
A sprinkling of laughter
And a splash of compromise.
A spot of wit and cunning
A slice of perspiration
An ounce of hope and wonder
And a cup of conversation.
Mix up the ingredients
As listed up above,
Serve with lashings of support
And unconditional love.
