You used to laugh

When Tigger would bounce

And tumble into Pooh


You used to dance

When Disney classics played

Over and over again


You used to come to me

When you hurt yourself

And needed a boo-boo kissed


You used to be my little girl

When did that change

And you became the woman before me

Waiting Impatiently

He was doing it again and it drove her crazy.  Anytime he grew impatient he would bounce his leg.  As they sat in the waiting room to see her doctor his idiosyncrasy was showing.  “Would you please stop that,” she asked him.

“Stop what,” he replied.

She shook her head and said, “You were bouncing again.  You always do this when we are here.  It is embarrassing.”

“What if this was a medical condition I had?”

“Then I would say you need help.”

“That sounds like you, always running to the doctor.”

She sighed and went back to her magazine.
