Play

Play , they say is important in a

little ones life

and with christmas there’s plenty to engage with

yet – what do you find them playing with?

Possibly – it’ll be the blocks

lined around the living room

and perhaps – it could be the teddy bears

yet , no it’s not them

Perhaps – theyre playing with puzzles

lots of those wrapped up this year

alongside the tin toy trucks and aeroplanes

you know – its not them either

Positioned in the middle of the lounge floor

located away from the christmas tree

a cardboard box with wrapping paper

yet with all those toys – it’s their favourite plaything.

Just another day

#Napowrimo #paperswans #children

Picking up post for Mum and dad

and reading a chapter a day

Helping doing the washing

and putting it away

one hundred and one little things to do

whilst i’m away from school

playing games with nanna

watching granddad play the fool

and i’ve pegged out all my teddies clothes

so they’ll be as snug as a bug

this afternoon i’ll be dressing them

and giving them a great big hug
