when food in the fridge disappears before noon,
when the television is switched on way too soon,
when many cushions fly across the hall,
when you trip over little things and fall.
when night takes too long to start,
when fights are launched due to a single fart,
Thank you so much Zara's mum!
when you can't seem to hear yourself speak,
when you have to give chase with that familiar stick.
Thank you so much Adriana's mum!
when whines and cries end up in stares,
when "No" only means you are not being fair,
when taking sides means you love the other more,
when your feet, hand, nose, elbow ache and sore.
You know it's here...
when hugs and kisses are the preferred currency,
when the faces you grow to love are all you see,
when lonely moments leave you at their sight,
when you are theirs exclusively day and night.
Have fun with the kiddos folks!
