Conversation with a Toddler


Bumbling, babbling baby, you have so much to say,

You’ll surpass my intelligence pretty soon someday.

Each emphatic syllable of yours weighs a tonne.

Goodness me, my busy-bee, you are so much fun.

Honestly speaking though, your words are tough to construe,

Mostly, it’s easier deciphering the health of your poo.


Jeepers mum, for goodness’ sake, keep up, will you?!

I’ve got to manage our six year old dog and now you too?!

You talk a lot mummy and you don’t always make sense.

Sometimes I don’t get why you’re so bloody intense.

This day you speak of when I’ll be smarter, isn’t that far.

So brace yourself woman, I’m a little star!
