If you have a toddler who is ever allowed loose on an iPad, (other brands of tablet available…) then you will get this. (At least I hope I’m not the only one!)
Here is my toddler’s Valentine’s poem to the current love of his life. (I have reinterpreted some of his words for him…)
Disney Collector, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the amazing length and height
my fingers can reach, even when the iPad is supposedly out of sight.
For your sweetness and calm soothing voice.
I love thee as much as the surprise eggs
that you show me, with carefully manicured hands.
I love thee freely, as my parents strive to unsubscribe
from your youtube channel, even as they turn to sigh.
I love thee for the Disney Pixar helicopter
that I now yearn for, with my toddlerhood’s persistence.
I love thee with a love I seem to lose
with my ordinary toys. I love thee with the drools,
smiles, tears, of all my life (so far) and, if Mum allows,
I shall but love thee better after your next video…
Adapted from the original poem: How do I love thee? Let me count the ways by Elizabeth Barrett Browning (in case you wanted to read some real poetry.)
Happy Valentine’s Day!
