#Mum #Dad #Family

Captured in a moment of relative calm,

A happy occasion with four or five generations gathered round

Man of the moment sat slap bang in the centre, wondering what all the

Excitement is all about, too little to

Realise – he’s getting all the attention from the rest of the clan

As he’s the person they’ve all come to see!

Five more days of Christmas

Salford 2nd January 2019

#christmas #newyear

If you find this post a little scrambled, there is a reason

Six hours kip doesn’t do much for the festive spirit

But just what do you do after new year ?

Back to work or school after two weeks away

If you’re a kid all you want to do is play

With all those toys you pulled with name under tree

And played all week , your time is free

But now clock has chimed…schools calling for you

And work says mum and dad is needed too

While all the time the tree is in the corner with toys

That gave you a surprise, and some extended joy

Paint 🎨

Paint

proud little toddler, parades his masterpiece

as mum and dad peruse the aftermath

in consideration, there really is more colour on the paper and

not the wall, now scattered in the maestros colours

together they smile…as the soapy water will be out after bedtime

Learning

Building blocks of life,

Everyone knows, they have to be taught

Going from crawling to walking – now that is a biggie

Indeed, the very skill of balance is one to be mastered

Next, comes the art of communication – language that comes later, letting

Nanna or Grandad know you want changing is the second step

In getting about the house,

Next – its mastering those things called forks and spoons – a messy job

Going to school ? a doddle to navigating the living room and tying those boots.
