I have a wicked sense of humour and like to see the funny side to things, but it takes something extra special to make me laugh out loud. This weeks prompt for Friday Reflections had me stumped for a bit until this. I loved it so much I get the kids to show it to me over and over again. I almost cry from laughing so much, it is just so cute.
A New Game
Here in our new special home, the children share a room
Lacking in a bunk bed, mattresses lay strewn
When the evening comes, tired babes they are
Put them into bed, and that’s when they become
Energizer bunnies, so excited to be
Sharing a bedroom, far across the sea
Usually I spend my nights, calling for them to ‘QUIET!’
One special night this week, I ventured in to see this riot
Watching from the doorway, I saw the children’s cheeky grins
Beaming at me through the dark, welcoming me in
‘What are you doing’ I asked them with a smile
‘We are playing our new game, would you like to stay a while?’
‘Sure’ I say, ‘teach me how, you play this funny game’
‘OK’ they squeal excitedly and prepare to entertain.
Now they’re doing downward dog, well their giving it their best
‘Oohhh my nappy is lifting up!’ my babes cry out in tandem
Then they kick their legs out through the back
Down on their tummy’s they’ve landed.
‘How adorable this game you play, I must make a record’
Then Friday Reflections came up again
Now I get to write, what made me laugh out loud this week?
My children’s pure delight
