Poem for a Two-year-old

Griffen Is Two
Grandma Baadsgaard
I love you buddy. Have a great day!

When you’re turning two
There’s lots of work to do
Like turn every knob in the house
Then sneak around quiet as a mouse
Grab lots of treats to nibble
And use lots of pens to scribble
All over freshly painted walls
Then counter-tops newly installed
Next you find balls to throw
And make forts in the snow
Climb on beds and jump
using your arms for a pump
Then pick up rocks to pound
Smash pan lids for startle sounds
Whenever food is near
It is your job to make it smear
Then make your belly wiggle
Right there in your middle
For if you’re turning two
There is lots of work to do . . .
