#Blogtober18 day 4: ditty for #NationalPoetryDay

This is dedicated to my own terrible two year old and all the mums coping with the others out there!

Day in the Life of a Terrible Two (read or sing to Frere Jacques)
Are you sleeping? Are you sleeping?
Of course not! Of course not!
Silly Mummy. Silly Mummy.
It’s the middle of the night, middle of the night.
Time for the school run. Time for the school run.
Please get dressed! Please get dressed!
We are in a hurry. We are in a hurry.
Brush your teeth. Brush your teeth.
Can I have a biscuit? Can I have a biscuit?
No you can’t. No you can’t. (repeat these 2 lines for an hour)
Can I have a biscuit? Can I have a biscuit?
Go on then, just the one.

I want telly. I want telly.
Let’s play with your toys, play with your toys.
I only want YouTube, only want YouTube
And a biscuit too, and a biscuit too.
It is lunchtime. It is lunchtime.
Here you go. Here you go.
This is so yucky. This is so yucky.
I want yours, even though it’s the same.

Time for your bath. Time for your bath.
No I don’t like. No I don’t like.
Splash splash splash splash splash splash
I won’t get out, it’s too much fun.
Sleep well, my darling. Sleep well my darling.
Please sleep through! Please sleep through!
I’ll see you very soon, Mum. I’ll see you very soon, Mum.
I love you. I love you.
And just to reassure myself that it is only a phase, here are my older two as terrible twos!

  2. Awwwww I LOVE this ditty!!! And, it’s so true. Even now I can hear myself protesting about biscuits and YouTube! Although, mine now claims it’s for research for when she does toy reviews. Oh my gawd! Thanks for joining us for the #dreamteam xx
