Groundhog Day

If today was happening on repeat
I know I’d savor the way she laughs,
How quickly she’s learning everything,
How much she loves drinking anything out of a straw.
(Truly, it’s the toddler version of a festive umbrella.)

If today was happening on repeat
I’d want to remember how she sits on my lap to eat strawberries
And how we clink them together first and say “cheers!” before we dig in.

I think I’d be just fine if today was happening on repeat.
