Milk weaning,
Oatmeal cleaning,
Time for cuddles,
Homework struggles,
Early rising, lack of wealth,
Rarely thinking of oneself.

Fear protecting,
App selecting,
Tickle times,
Help to climb,
Ever ready with a hug,
Running, jumping, chasing bugs.

Putting other people first,
Always proud, about to burst,
Realising that life is fleeting,
Evenings in and fussy eating,
Not too long before they've flown,
Tot, teenager, fully grown,
Such hard work, yet what a thrill, a little life with love to fill.
