Roller coaster

He’s a roller coaster

Up’s and downs and all around

You don’t know which way he’s turning, which direction, or how high

The only constant is that he does everything fast

He’s two, almost three, and has more depth than a ninety year old

You can see it in his eyes, hear it in his voice

When he wants to be alone, he means with one of us

When he wants to play, he means with one of us

And no one at the same time

He’s complicated

And wonderful

He picked me a flower today, it was his idea, and he was so proud

Ten minutes later he was sitting in time out because he wasn’t listening to us

Sometimes I worry we don’t hear him, understand him

And I tell myself, he’s only two

But he’s all of two

Everything it can embody

We love every inch of him, every moment

We’re buckled in for this crazy ride

Arms reaching high to the sky during the highs

Arms holding tight as we navigate the unknown corners

We’re here for the ride
