Growing pains

If I teach you how to make your own oatmeal,
Will you still sit with me for breakfast?
When you learn how to tie your own shoes,
Will you still think I'm smart?
When your gangly legs hang far off my lap,
Will I still be your favorite chair?
When you find that I don't have all the answers,
Will you still ask me?
When you learn that it still hurts after I kiss it better,
Will you still need me?
