Babysitting the Granddaughter!


Another MouthfulMrs Bard and I have taken on one of the worlds most demanding jobs. We are baby-sitting while our daughter and son-in-law have gone skiing.
I think we’re doing it right…

Toys are scattered all over the floor,
There’s chaos everywhere,
The dog is sitting expectantly,
Under the child’s high chair!
Some of the lunch hits the target,
Most of it covers her clothes,
A yoghurt is offered for pudding,
Much of it spread on her nose!
Finally the meal is over,
A grand wipe-round with a cloth,
The menu has been a disaster,
I wish I’d given her broth!
