Tuesday: A Poem for LC from her Marmee

Tuesday

I’ll do it Tuesday she says
when asked to put away her toys.
Put on your socks we say
and learn they’ll be on her feet on Tuesday.
Time to get up for breakfast,
just two more minutes she says
and snuggles deeper into the blankets.
OK, now hurry to the potty but that
too will happen next Tuesday.
So a three-year old processes
her world and all those times
she’s heard about from adults.
Two minutes more, next Tuesday,
right now are all one
and all wonderful.
