Mums don’t Lunch.

lunch plate

Arriving at the Cafe, sitting down to lunch

all of us together a lovely family bunch

what you going to have mum? I hear the eldest say

as I try to settle the little one who’s wriggling away

Can we  have a burger and cheese and chips they shout

as one of them knocks a drink over, and juice comes gushing out

what you having mum they say, this menu is for you

and as I take a glance at it I hear “I NEED A POO”

the menu’s down we’re out the seat going to the loo

no wonder he was wriggling, but what’s a mum to do

so finally the food arrives the kids are eating fine,

and i’m just having coffee, I forgot to order mine!

    Ha ha! Oh yes, sounds awfully familiar 😉 Thank you for the mention and link hun, much appreciated. I’m just chuffed to be classed as ‘inspiring’ rather than a ‘Poo Head’ (my children’s favourite term of endearment) 😉 x
