Day 359, watching him

He eats Mac
And cheese
He pushes
Orange noodles
Into his mouth
With chubby fingers

He doesn't know
the word
Delectable but
He is thinking it

He doesn't know
That I watch him.
Like fluffy cheeks
Pink puffy lips
And cheesy noodles
Are some kind of
Seventh wonder

He is thinking
Swords! Lightening McQueen!

He doesn't know
What ego is
But we guard it
He and I, like
A national treasure
We guard it

Yes you are big
Strong, tough
Smart, perfect.

Yes, you are.
