Now Iím Three & I Know Ö
A Preschool Poem
by CJ Heck

I know never touch fire, thatís HOT,
but I can touch ice, 'cause itís not,
& puppies are soft & kitties are too,
soís most of the stuff moms & dads give to you.

I know, never tell people theyíre fat,
'cause it will hurt them if I do that,
& rocks arenít for throwing at others
but itís okay to throw pillows at brothers.

I know daddy says swears I canít say,
& I have to wear clothes out to play,
'cause one time I went outside naked
& Mrs. Johnson saw me & she called Mommy
& Mommy came outside & got mad (sniff)
& she yelled at me (sniffle-sniffle) & I had to
sit in a chair for a whole time out and Ö

I know cookies smell better than cheese,
& to get one, I have to say "please",
& how to go pee in the potty,
but not in my pants, 'cause thatís naughty.

I know flowers don't needs any feet,
& no dessert if I donít eat my meat,
& I got to blow boogers in tissue,
& don't wipe off where ladies kiss you.

When I wake mommy up, never holler,
& pennies are not more than a dollar,
& scissors are never for cutting my hair,
the barber does that, (but I hate going there).

I laugh 'cause it's better than cry,
& you canít squeeze a worm, it will die,
& Daddy will laugh if Iím burping,
& Mommyís kiss helps when I'm hurting,

I know SO many things, now I'm three,
& this stuff helps ME be a good ME.
I know lots more than I did when Iím two
of the stuff I can do and I canít do.

I love your childrens poetry, it's like you revert to the child your writing about. Sometimes I wish I could go back and make it all different. Your poems help me see what I missed. Great stuff!

Hi CJ, this is so cute! It sure is fun watching little ones grow. I even find myself wondering what babies think when they look at you and smile and kick their little legs in excitement when you're talking to them. I just wonder!

I really enjoying all your childrens' poems! Thank you, precious CJ.

God Bless

And the say all the good things in life are free...or are they prohibited :) Just joking. This indeed made me smile. Now with my grandson, I don't say don't do that. I say good boy whenever he responds. Bless his smile, he continues to do what I don't want him to do....guess I'll have to wait until he's three. Victor

This one is spot on and as my two granddaughters approach the three year old mark I have already heard a lot of this knowledge expressed by them as well. You gotta love kids, they are beautiful and so is this write CJ. Did you get my message?

This reminded me of some sagacious advice I received when I was a teenager, by a trusted and older mentor..

" If I only knew then.....What I know now "...

You are such a natural and spontaneous writer, who freely gives of her soul to her readership..

Five stars for you from

Love and Hugs
