Inspired by my God-daughter.
After a lovely dinner of roast chicken,
my two year old said, “Yummy mummy chicken”.
The next day I decided to do roast pork
to help her taste buds, to explore.
When dinner was done she smiled and said,
“Yummy mummy chicken.
May I please have some bread”
I must not quit, I’ll try again,
but this time with some fish.
and so with love I prepared the meal
with no bones, this was a big deal.
She licked her fingers, her face a mess
but then she said the words again,
“Yummy mummy chicken.”
I sighed, I failed the test.
And then it hit me,
I never failed,
for all the meals I gave, she praised
and so I’ll continue this life of living
for my two year old
who thinks everything’s chicken.
