In November, a new nephew arrived just a few weeks before his brothers 3rd birthday, so I wrote this for him about the new arrival.
My Baby Brother
I have a baby brother,
And he looks a bit like me.
Now my family is different
From how it used to be.
He’s soft and he’s wrinkly,
And he wriggles when you touch
And his eyes are small and crinkly
And sometimes don’t open much.
I can let him hold my finger
I can show him all his toys.
I think there’s some that I had
‘Cos they’re all for little boys.
But he’s always needing feeding
Or he’s doing a big poo,
And he has so many cuddles
When I want to have them too.
My Mummy’s still my Mummy
But she’s now his Mummy too,
So I can’t do all the things I want,
Or what we used to do.
But I know that he’ll get bigger
And there won’t be all the fuss;
And then with my little brother
There won’t just be me, but US!
And this one was for my niece who turned ten last year. She has very long, very lovely hair.
Long hair; Blonde hair; How to wear my hair:
French plait? Dutch braid? Pony Tail?
Half up? Half down?
Triple plaits round the crown?
Fishtail? Pull through? Boho-style?
Blonde hair, Long hair, Fab hair My Hair!
