A little bit of routine,
A familiar corner, person or toy.
A small push into the unfamiliar,
A new game, place or song.
To go high up in the swings,
To be brave in the slides,
To try the monkey bars, maybe!
Crayons and markers to color the
Papers to tear and squirrels to watch.
Tantrums and dramas have their place
Righ beside hugs, cuddles and sweet babbles
Friends to fight, share and learn new tricks
Mobiles and laptop to punch away!
A little solitary and a little company,
Colroful books filled with butterflies and dora.
A dose of compliments and 'great jobs'
Undesired but a sure shot of reprimands too.
Half eaten apples, half finished cookies
Self made lyrics and complementing music
An over conscious mom, a doting dad!
A little nap
And even more little food.
It does seem to be tough to be a kid these days, no? :)
