Those Terrible Two’s
Please tell me where my little boy has gone?
One minute he’s here, happy and mild,
The next thing he’s been replaced
By an out of control devil child!
The slightest little thing can set him off,
Like giving him the wrong biscuit or snack.
Or maybe not letting him get his own way
I so want to give this devil child back!
So melodramatic as he falls to the ground,
Screaming and rolling all over the floor.
His red, tear stained face crying so loudly
I just want to scream: “Please stop! No more!”
The sudden transformation before my eyes
From Burton to devil’s child is so fast.
It’s horrible; he gets so out of control
And there’s no telling how long it will last!
I know it can’t be helped. It’s not his fault
That he’s reached this milestone at his age.
He’s experiencing that dreaded ‘toddler phase’
Every parent’s nightmare: the ‘terrible two’s’ stage!
So terrible two’s please hurry up and do your worst,
Then please return to me my lovely boy once again.
However, no doubt once they have passed Burton by
Jenson’s will have started and will drive me insane!
