Toddler Tea

I thought I’d invite toddlers for tea, so my own would stay out of my hair. They would sit and sip so daintily, Follow rules, and play games so fair. Smile ever sweet, use the word please Say thank you, ma’am, and stay on their chairs. Be careful with my fine china, says me. They laugh, they snort, and they wiggle like hares. They dive off the couch, with giggles of glee. They land heaped together, gulping in air. Chairs in a pile at the bottom of the stairs, Everything in sight has been licked by Lee, Chairs in a heap at the bottom of stairs, Strange things are happening, how can this be? I think I have been invaded by bears!

charming and delightful. Today I saw Peter Rabbit and for some reason, this kind of poem makes me feel whimsical like that movie was.

Dear Caren, this is priceless. Totally adorable. Talk about a lesson learned the hard way. The word delusional comes to mind. LOL Too funny. A definite FAVE for me.
