Toddler Time Twice
These toddler years are so fleeting,
little eyes big hearts retreating.
Clinging and needing hugs,
fleeing and spreading wings.
Put that iPhone down mama dear,
make sure you heed that little tear.
Before these years are gone,
their baby curls weighed down
by worries of the bigger years.
Hold close those little hands,
sweaty feet and sticky sweet
cheeks to kiss and caress.
That toddler is bittersweet,
unbridled energy that exhausts
with love so forgiving
for frazzled parents here
trying to survive these toddler years.
