…and they will love you too

on March 11, 2014

garden theme game

When I picked our little bear up

from nursery one day last week,

It was rather chilly for a spring day,

It was really rather bleak.


As the lady opened the gate to me

I could see my happy little bear,

She was grinning from ear to ear,

she just loves going there.


With a skip and a hop,

she came running up to me,

a bunch of homemade flowers in her hand,

“I made them for you Mummy!”.


My heart burst with pride,

I grinned from ear to ear,

“I made them by myself Mummy!”

I will always hold them dear.


These flowers are quite special,

they didn’t need a garden to grow,

or Mr Bloom’s compost,

there were no seedlings to sow.


No, these petals are paper thin,

pipecleaners are their stems.

They are guaranteed to grow,

they don’t have ‘ifs’ and ‘whens’.


They simply need lots of nurturing

and lots of talking to.

They just need love and cuddles

and they will love you too.

  4. Ah! I love being given things that my two made at toddler group while I was at work (even though I know it was really made by my mum!) I think I’ll be shocked and stunned if JJ ever gives me anything he made himself that resembles a recognisable ‘thing’! #TheThemeGame

  5. You have so totally captured the wonder of your child’s homemade things –
    to treasure for ever, and hold on to the memories of that precious child’s development.
