This ‘can do’ attitude is why I love toddlers. Maybe we all need (a little bit of) this!
I wish I could talk more, and tell you how I’m feeling.
If I could explain it, I could lay off on the squealing.
You see I’m not yet 2 and don’t have the all the language;
Sometimes shouting is the best way to get a sandwich!
There are times I’m awake and bored in the night,
I just need a little company and for you to hear my plight.
When I wake you in this dark ungodly hour,
I hear you tut and say I have a strong will power.
You’re so lucky that you get more time with me.
Doesn’t matter if you sleep in for work
– I know you will agree!
I love toys so much, of that, you are aware.
So why, then, do you try to make me share?
If I want them, I’ll get them –
and there’s nothing you can do.
I don’t care if I scream and frighten little Hugh!
You love me more than anyone in the land –
but can I ask you to listen to this demand?
You don’t realise and it’s time for you to see –
EVERYTHING IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD
SHOULD CENTRE AROUND ME!
