Poetry for Children

A Blended Family

One mom
Two gramps
Three fat cats
Four neighbors
Five best friends
Six family recipes
Seven tickle battles
Eight pics on the wall
Nine holiday traditions
Ten years of family love
Nine aunts and uncles
Eight unfunny jokes
Seven first cousins
Six fish in a bowl
Five zany sitters
Four siblings
Three grams
Two dads
One me
