When you are two


When you are two,

and you think no one is looking at you,

you tend to find things to get into.

Sometimes you want to jump on your bed,

or climb on your pretend kitchen and almost bump your head.

Maybe you prefer to dump out all your toys,

and make loud noises that bring you such joy.

Since you recently learned how to cut paper,

you like to make big messes and clean it up later.

If you only knew and looked over your shoulder,

that I was watching you in awe of you getting older.

Time passes so fast you see,

that you will one day be telling this to me.
