Being Two


What  does it mean to be two
Means "I am big; I want to be just like you."

Two is for repeating all that you say
And following you around everywhere like a tail.

Two is for nappies, not just yet for potties
Two is about doing things your own way.

Two is for tantrums, tears and testing times
For play, dance, stories and nursery rhymes.

Two is for growing up, becoming really big
For thinking you really are a big kid.

Two is for thinking Aai is the best in the world
And all boo boos are set right with a kiss and a hug.

Two is for testing boundaries, setting limits and more
For cheeky grins, hugs, kisses and cuddles galore!

Two is for discovery and unbridled joy
Two is crying real tears over a broken toy.

Two is running, climbing and hopping
Two is about scrambling, jumping and talking.

Two is about a very strong will
And being too busy to ever sit still.

Two is going everywhere on little pattering feet
For being rather messy, there is nothing really neat.

Two is not all terrible and glum
Two is lots of joy and tons of fun.
