Milne

Also from last night, watching the three-year-old and how he's growing up reminds me very much of an A.A. Milne poem:


James James Morrison Morrison Weatherby George Dupree
Took great care of his mother, although he was only three.
James James said to his mother, "Mother," he said, said he
"You must never go down to the end of the town if you don't go down with me."


I can imagine that conversation taking place. It seems that three is a very serious age.

I looked it up this morning, and the rest of the poem is much more grim than I had remembered. It must be time for me to pull out my Milne again and refresh my memory on some of the rest. A visit with Pooh is always a good thing (except when you're playing Kingdom Hearts).
