A Toddler's Ode to Pockets

by Ana Balich June 28, 2021 1 min read

Mom calls it junk, but really it’s treasure.
I need to hide it, cuz I’m feeling the pressure.
If Mom finds it first, she’s sure to act rash.
She’ll gather it up and it’ll go in the trash.

From nubs of a crayon to magical rocks,
From Lego pieces to pairless socks,
A stale, soggy cracker I found on the floor,
Oooh what is this? An old apple core!

These are my prizes which I need to hide.
It’s crucial I carry them right by my side.
This is why pockets are really quite key.
To keep all my treasures where mom will not see.

I don’t like fake pockets, they give me false hope.
When pockets aren’t functional, I sit and I mope.
No, they must be real! I prefer them quite sturdy!
To hold all my band-aids! Maybe like thirty?

If I don’t have pockets, I won’t wear that dress,
I won’t wear those shorts, so just give it a rest.
This is a problem we can overcome,
If you get my clothes from Princess Awesome.

About the Designer - Carrie Cantwell

I’m an illustrator, surface designer and educator based in Atlanta, GA. I live with my boyfriend and our three rescue kitties, who very often make it into my art, especially the two black cats.

I feel very comfortable creating art for kids, because I'm really a kid at heart. I love cute animals and bright colors. I find it particularly satisfying to distill complex concepts into simple shapes that are stylized but easily recognizable.

Sienna Farr was one of Princess Awesome's first models, before our Kickstarter, before we were much more than a dream and a few dresses made of tee shirts and quilting material. She died in a fire that also seriously injured her mother on August 11, 2023, aged 13.
