Today’s post is a poem about my darling li’l girls. Since my girls are so much a part of who I am and what I do, I thought I’d take a little break from my usual penning and share a little “creative writing”. Since I’ve read the Lorax by Dr. Seuss a gazillian or more times, now I’m starting to think in such silly little rhymes. So here you go – enjoy:
My girls are often giddy, ticked pink and just three!
Though they’ll tell you they’re five with such utter-sheer glee.
In the kitchen they play, and they eat and they taste.
Gotta be sure to serve small or they surely will waste.
From pizza with pesto with garlic and kale
to fruits of all types (they eat)…’til no more avail.
Broccoli tops they call trees, and chew carrots with ease,
they pop brussel sprouts in their mouth -
oh, how they can please.
But give ‘em a sweet, some chocolate delight,
they carry-on happily, oh what a site!
They eat healthy mostly, except on occasion
and consume quite a bit – it is often amazin’.
For they’re tiny pint-sized and petite as can be,
but remember they’re full of energy – yes they are three.
So tonight is daddy’s birthday and they enjoyed a wee treat,
tomorrow back to healthy they surely will eat. : )
