Sunday Scribblings - New

I just love to see the prompts pop up every week for the Sun Scribblings. Each time some diffrent idea fills my head. This week, a cute little poem. Enjoy!

The Barbie Dream House sat gleaming
The bikes shiny chrome still shone
Movies crinkled, their plastic wraps pristine
While books remained alone.

I bent to retrieve scattered paper,
All crumbled and torn
When giggles erupted
On that one special morn...

One boy and one girl
In their old fuzzy socks
Hiding from me
In that new dishwasher box

For more fun posts, stop by the Sunday Scribblings blog.

    Probably not!

    Thanks! I'm still over the moon excited that it's finally out!!

  17. Beautiful, We sometimes forget that the simple things can just as much fun for kids as some modern trendy toy can be....and that those simple things enhance creativity in them.
    Congratulations on the book!

  18. Thanks linda may,
    So right you are about enhancing their creativity. Such an important thing to, but sadly we grown-ups sometimes forget that. Thank goodness the little ones remind us in such cute ways. :)

    Thanks...I really should be writing the next in the series, but I'm still over the moon about this story. :)
