A Little Too Little......
A little too little for snakes and ladders
Too little for puzzles too
One is too little for so many things
That ‘one-year-old’ wants to do
A little too little for throwing a ball
A little too little to catch
A little too little for playing games
Like Bingo and Uno and Match
A little too little for coloring books
A little too little to bike
A little too little for helping much
Or to do anything that he’d like
But one is just right for cleaning out drawers
And exploring every nook
One is just right for opening up doors
Or snuggling with a book
One is just right for reaching up high
And ‘discovering’ through ‘uh-oh’ and messes
One is just perfect to swing to the sky
And spoil with a thousand kisses
One is just right to cuddle and hug
Or to play games like peek-a-boo
One is just right for rock-a-bye
Oh, there’s so much that ‘one’ can do
Yesterday I was playing ‘catch’ with
The four-year-old that I baby-sit
And one-year-old was seriously frustrated because he couldn’t
Quite maneuver that racquets we were playing with…..
Poor guy, I said to Michael…I think he thinks he’s too little for everything!!!!
I picked him up and cuddled him……
He laid his head on my shoulder……See?
One is NOT too little for everything!
