Gathers no moss

When you

lie on the floor

with your three-year-old daughter

in the living room

and declare,

"I think we should get up. They're ready in the kitchen,"

you will

sit up

put your hands behind you

flatten your feet to the carpet

and rise to standing.

She will


"I'm going to roll there."

And she will tumble sideways

across the living room

in and out of the dining room

and onto the linoleum of the kitchen.

You will

have gotten there first

but you will


her way was better. Pin It
