A poem about my Daddy.
A guest post by Rhyming with wine gums – age 3 3/4.
My Daddy is lovely and silly,
And we think he is like Daddy Pig,
As he’s always a bit of an expert
But his tummy is not quite as big.
He plans all the bestist adventures,
And straps us all into the car,
He always does all of the driving,
Because Mummy won’t drive very far.
We like that he lets us watch Sponge Bob.
Which Mummy Pig thinks is just naff.
But he and I think it is clever,
As we snuggle together and laugh.
I have to eat fast for my dinner,
As sometimes he pinches my chips.
But I like when we sit on the sofa
And we each have a packet of cwips. (crisps)
At night time he’s king of the toothbrush
But he sucks at the story time gig!
And no matter which book we both ask for,
He ALWAYS reads “Hide and Seek Pig!”
We sometimes do girls versus boys things,
Where the boys pick on me and my Mum,
But I always am better than Daddy,
As Daddy’s a “Big Stinky Bum!”
We know that he’ll always protect us.
And make sure we’re safe, warm and fed,
But he’s not keen at 5 in the morning,
When we both try to jump on his head.
I’ve got him wrapped right round my finger,
And I know he won’t try to uncurl,
As I’ll love him forever and ever.
And I’ll always be his little girl.
Love you Daddy.
Editors comment: The little man was also invited to write a guest post for his Daddy on Father’s Day. He carefully constructed a succinct and meaningful post as follows:
Many thanks to Catie at Diary of an Imperfect Mum for her brilliant “Father’s Day Card Ideas” post which inspired the “footsteps” picture above.
