Do you know what Mummy, really does for fun?
It isn’t wiping boogy noses, or changing dirty bums.
It isn’t selling raffle tickets, or mending broken toys;
not even refereeing fights between small girls and boys.
Mummy doesn’t care much for folding, or searching for lost socks;
she certainly doesn’t enjoy removing ‘whoopsies’ from your jocks.
She doesn’t love hanging washing, or scrubbing dirty loos;
She’s not even that fussed on how fast your new car zooms.
What Mummy really loves, is seeing that toothy grin;
your cheeky laugh, and that dimple on your chin.
Mummy loves to spy on you, and watch you while you play;
The sibling love and cuddles are the things that make her day.
She loves to watch you learn, and master a brand new skill;
it never ceases to bring her pride, so full it often spills.
See, Mummy’s fun stems from the love she has for you;
(and don’t forget that sneaky glass of wine or two).
So remember this coming Mother’s Day; don’t behave badly,
And if you do have a ‘whoopsie’, please – go and tell your Daddy.
