Blogging all things parenting… and sometimes a bit in between ;)

note on a cork board

“Pass the bowl, oh Mummy Bear

I’m going to be sick”,

said our little bear to me one night,

the poor lamb was tom and dick.


Okay, so not a direct quote,

for our bear is not yet five.

You get the picture though,

bowl in hand as I duck and dive.


What a nasty time when our poor lambs are weak

as the yucky bugs take hold.

They just want their mums, they just want a cuddle,

as we shepherd them into the fold.


The extra washing, even less sleep,

the bugs they play merry hell.

But truth be told, we do not care,

we just want our lambs fit and well.
