This week’s book is…
My Daddy Rules the World by Hope Anita Smith.*
This is a cute collection of poems about Dad.
I think the littles’ favorite in this collection is When Daddy is Sleeping.
They think that anything and everything to do with snoring is hilarious these days. Grampa taught them how to fake snore and now even Little Bear is doing it!
I decided to sit down with the three littles and write some poems.
Because you are never too young to be a poet!
It was interesting trying to explain the art of writing poems to them; but this is what we ended up with.
I miss you
I love you
I want you to come home
…but you can’t.
Well, that one certainly hits Mom in the feels.
Bug actually told me two poems…
Daddy misses me
Daddy misses helping me clean
Daddy misses baking with me
Daddy misses building with me
Daddy misses playing with me
Daddy misses my help
Daddy misses cuddling with me *with no bear*
Daddy misses sticking his tongue out at me
Daddy misses me
This guy has been missing Daddy pretty hard lately. Just last night he was asking if it was time for Daddy to come home yet. *insert all the tears here*
He thinks he’s so funny because he calls everyone Mom.
They’re poets and they didn’t know it!
Such a terrible joke, that will forever get use.
