Game Of Pick Up
Only three but quite a threat –

So small, but such mighty screams!

Weather of emotions changing constantly…

No umbrella, as it seems.

But who’s in charge? The child or me?

 How do I find out?

The answer seems outside the door;

I’ll leave now with my doubt!

Wait a minute! You’ll miss the treasure,

Just inside the kid’s heart.

Take a moment to count to ten;

Then get a brand new start.

After the tantrum has settled down,

When the toddler has grown sleepy…

The child will give in and do as told –

Encouragement helps, believe me.

It’s then the treasure can be seen

But it does take time to grow;

The babe is learning to act in life,

Because there was time to sew!
