I have been thinking abut this incase we decide to have a naming day
I ike Dr Suess The places you'll go 9wanted it for wedding but H wasn't sure so seems like a good time to use it)
Slightly more twee according to my sister but I like them
The Desiderata (Go placidly amid the noise and the haste etc....)
If by Rudyard Kipling

Before You Came
What did we do, in the days before you came?
Vodka, and dancing, and staying out late
Breakfast at tea-time
Reading the papers, a long lie-in
And space in the bed
Now it's daisy chains, and super-heroes
Butterfly wings, and light-sabres
Eating pink cake
And catching snowflakes in our mouths
No room in the bed
And a half-sleep on its edge
While you snore, stretched out, a star-fish
Time escaping, before you came
And cast your spell
And filled the house with possibility;
All the things you want to do
And all the things you're going to be
So - let's make a den
Take our biscuits in
Carve lanterns at Hallowe'en
Watch grown-ups do star jumps on a trampoline
And wonder what we ever did
In the days before you came.

We had E's Naming Day on saturday and had two readings, If by Rudyard Kipling (my favourite poem) and Oh the Places You'll Go by Dr Seuss. E was falling asleep as I was reading it as I read it to him at bedtime! x
