# How Many? (Children)

Mommy, how many fish in the ocean?

How many peas in a pod?

How many steps up to Heaven

would there be if I went to see God?

How many kisses are too many?

How many bees in a swarm?

How many teeth will fit in my mouth?

How many snowflakes in a storm?

If it takes one night to count fireflies,

would it take two nights to count stars?

How many roads can there be in a mile?

How many miles is too far?

How many hairs are on my head?

Why did Daddy’s hairs all fall out?

If I count all day long then get tired,

how many numbers am I able to count?

How many rocks in a mountain?

How many shells on a beach?

How many hugs am I missing

'cause Grammy lives where I can't reach?

How many bricks in that building?

How many leaves in a tree?

How do you count how old someone is

if you only can count what you see?

When I get big, I’ll be a teacher.

I’ll show kids how to count every way.

Mommy, if I do teach them counting,

how many kids can I teach every day?

I wish I could know every number.

I’m gonna try - it’s fun to do!

There are so many things to be counted...

but only one me and one you.
