Little Ones

‘Terrible Two’s’ might seem to be a mythical term to a non-parent.  But to a parent of a two-year old, they probably find out that this label describes a situation far too real.  A daughter of mine has two, two-year olds – twins, and the reality of that term is very real.

When We Turn Two

Since we’re going to be big when we have our birthday,
me, Zoe, and my sister Jude, can’t wait to be two.
We’re going to show mommy all that we can say
since we’re going to be big when we have our birthday.
We’re going to yell and scream cuz that’s how we play
and mommy’s going to be tired and say ‘what the who?’
Since we’re going to be big when we have our birthday
me, Zoe, and my sister Jude, can’t wait to be two.
