My little Chocolate Mess

Bathwater and bubbles are waiting, but my child is nowhere near. Yet, I can see from cookie crumbs, he's crawled from here to there. Oh, yes! he's been in the kitchen. I see his crooked crumb trail, which leads to our white kitten, with a chocolate, sticky tail! In every room I search for my little chocolate mess. Then, I find him in the my bedroom, with his hands on my new dress!

Hi, Andrea, enjoyed hearing from you and of course I intend to read more of your poems, I love them! I get so involved in my poems, I forget about the contests they have here. You must be kidding though about the pet contest for this poem? the kitten in this poem is not the main subject. But I like his connection to the child. Blessings, Darlene
