“Mmm, yummy!”

He says, grinning through PB&J

He claps his hands and says

To my surprise, “happy day!”

I just about die laughing

At the words he is learning

And my heart just melts

When he begins flirting

Stroking my hair,

Cupping my face in his hands

“Pretty Mommy”, he says

And yep, I am at his command.

His ammo for “NO!”

Is those super long lashes

He flutters them while smirking

Who’s out of chances?

Was he in trouble, or is it me?

Because he is all I can see

When his tiny voice says

“Wuv you, mommy”.

He fights me with everything

Getting dressed is a UFC match

I am constantly protecting myself

From every head-butt, bite and scratch

When he gets angry

He tries to “Hulk out”

Holds his breath and starts to shake

But I just laugh out loud.

His wit keeps me chuckling,

His intelligence amazes me

I am sure my friends are tired

Of hearing him count to twenty.

But he’s not even two,

And he knows his letters,

I am already so blown away,

I can’t believe it gets better.

I just hope he calms down a little

Because I can’t quite keep up!

Four AM, what the hell is that?

Oh just my son, he’s already up.

Playing in the dark with his toys

Looks at me like, “What?

Don't mind me, just playin'

with my good friends Woody and Buzz"

I can and can’t wait to see

What crazy things he will do

I just hope he does better than me

And thinks things through

Whatever the future holds,

I'll always remember this face

so innocent and happy,

just covered in PB&J.

This is so cute! I couldn't imagine a life without my little ones - my son is 4 and my daughter is 1. You also have a smart one. My son can already read words though he is only 4. I also wished I could keep this moments forever. Thank you for sharing this wonderful poem along with the cute photos!
