I wonder what it is about being the Smallest?
That requires you to be the one who draws on walls?
The one who pulls pages out of books, and decides
it would be a splendid idea to put the whole, entire loo roll down the loo?
The one who quietly, meticulously deconstructs your brothers lego creations?
And the one who swung the kitten by his tail?
And all done with the sweetest, most angelic face,
those big blue eyes that melt your heart.
How can we ever, ever be cross?
Because it wasn't you!
No, you tell us it's the other boy,
a mysterious other boy named 'Lukey'.
But it's your kindness with your friends,
your sweet disposition that tends towards giggles
and a desire to have fun!
Your insatiable appetite for for figuring out the world.
These are the things that we love about you,
the things that make us all agree
you have to be The Cutest Thing On Two Legs!
Happy Birthday B!
And now to mix it up a little,
because things have not been usual here for the last little while:
our week in pictures!
A walk on Wednesday, after the parade
saw us lost in our very own town!
Quite enjoyable, though too much for some little legs.
A small town parade, reminds me of how it used to be for us as kids.
The quiet sounds of hungry children eating,
humming through their munching, like crickets,
spoons scraping against bowls.
Her slow progress through her food is
lost in medieval courts and words.
Out walking we found these little pieces of someone's story.
