for my littlest man
What are you up to, little man?
What you got there in that red bowl?
Are they small and round?
And bright and colorful?
Did you know you can string them on a cord?
Do your pudgy fingers make that hard?
Are you easily distracted?
You are hard-headed too.
Do you know that hard-headedness is a blessing sometimes?
Do you know that you persist at the job until you get it done?
Even if it frustrates you.
Did you know your brother doesn’t have the patience to string beads like you do?
He prefers to paint.
But you are good at tedious tasks.
Did you know that?
Even if you occasionally get distracted.
You always make me proud.
