Blog Hog

So, I'm a blog hog today, sorry. I've been working on my collection of family bedtime stories and I am so much amused by what I have come up with for Daniel running into the wall that I want to share.

Wee Uncle Daniel runs through the house,

Up stairs and down stairs fast as a mouse,

Laughing at the motion, running for the wall

How could the boy again mistake the ending of the hall?

Weary is the mother who has a klutzy child,

A small short little child, who runs into the wall

Who always brings a battle with disbelieving nurses

"Are you sure these cuts and bruises did not come with curses?"

A later verse of Wee Willie Winkie:

Weary is the mother who has a dusty child,
A small short little child, who can't run on his own,
Who always has a battle with sleep before he'll close an eye
But a kiss from his rosy lips gives strength anew to me.

So, please use the comments field to let me know what you think.

I would like to know the story or poem about everyone else as well.

Well, Daniel, not everyone runs into walls. So far the other stories are about mom and dad. I'm still open to suggestions for stories about the other kids.

By the way, Ian can't get enough of it :)

Cute idea April. Daniel deserves a poem.
