HBDMAYA

FOR MAYA AT THREE YEARS OLD

HOW CAN THIS
WEE LITTLE MINION
WIELD SUCH
STRONG OPINIONS
THAT AT THE AGE OF THREE
SHE HAS ALREADY DECREED
ONLY AVOCADOS FOR ME
ABSOLUTELY NO BROCCOLI.

AND WHEN DID SHE
MASTER THE ART
OF SLIGHT OF HAND
SO THAT ONE OFFERED COOKIE
BECOMES TWO
AS SHE PLANNED.

HOW DOES SUCH A
TINY TOT KNOW
THAT MY SOLE PURPOSE IS
TO COLOR AND ROLL PLAY DOUGH
TO NEVER MAKE HER EAT
ANYTHING GREEN
TO HAVE PLENTY OF COOKIES
AND ACKNOWLEDGE SHE IS THE QUEEN
WHO RULES OVER HER TOTALLY
BESOTTED BY LOVE GRANDPARENTS.

Wishing you a sweet little ruler in your life,

Bernadette

 

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

  1. Lovely poem and I know just how you feel – we have a range of grandchildren, including an almost 3 yr old grand-daughter whom I have just been watching on video sitting ‘reading’ a book I gave her called Hugless Douglas, so cute. (I love the title and bought the book solely because of it). Happy Birthday, Maya! (Love the name, too) β˜ΊοΈπŸ’•

  2. Loved your poem, Bernadette! Grandchildren are so awe-inspiring and seem to come just in time to bring the balm of joy to crusty old hearts. I have four grandkids, each unique, charming, bright, loving and even better than that empathetic and kind. I love to watch them with each other and with other children. They are also a reflection of their parents which brings me extra joy. Thanks for this lovely post! Jo

  3. Beautiful pic! And your words captured the essence of your royal highness!. Chuckled about the play dough because that’s what Imi and I did when we played together this week (in addition to reading a huge stack of books).

  4. So funny, Bernadette! I can totally relate. The Overlord turns 3 in about a month. What masters of the universe they are! I wish I could absorb the world and learn as much as they in just 3 years! Happy Mother’s (Grandmother’s) Day!

  5. What a sweetheart! Who wouldn’t be besotted? Enjoy the spoiling and the loving of such a precious person. That is what grandparents are for.
    Happy Birthday Maya!
