Long afternoon with
puzzle pieces, books, singing
"Happy Birthday!" to himself

Busy little boy
wanting Mommy's attention
Mommy wants something.

No interruptions?
The chance to be effective?
Maybe chocolate?

In the meantime, she
reads The Toolbox one more time
cuddles sweet baby.

Mommy knows next year
will be very different
little time for books

Puzzles will be done
at preschool, growing up fast
Baby--little boy.

cuddle while you can
a blink: everything changes
no longer little
