Hurry Hurry Uh Oh

Three years old
such a big boy
Montessori school
Three days a week

Time to pick you up
So glad to see you
Miss your sweet self
My days aren't the same

Your face has a frown
That's not like you
I give you a hug
And put you in the car

You want to tell me
But you are full of shame
You had an accident today
And you want to explain

As soon as you felt the urge
You ran to the bathroom
But you couldn't make it in time
And you figured out why

"My pee went faster than I could"
you said. I stopped on the way home
and bought you an ice cream cone.

The picture is my son at age 3.

Lola Sharp said... sweet. Love the heartfelt poem, and the photo.

I miss when my daughter was that age. They grow up so darn fast. *sigh*

Have a wonderful weekend, friend.

You know Techno, we think a lot alike when it comes to kids. I'd have brought him an ice cream too to celebrate the fact that he tried.

And what a gorgeous tike!!!!

Both my kids went to a Montessori school. :)

Haven't we all had that kind of accident? No one bought me an icecream cone though!

I love this post. The picture tells more than a thousand words. I feel the moment in time, that sometimes mothers wish we could go back to.
