Some mothers wear very sensible shoes
wear tight trousers and tops.
Some mothers spend all day cooking at home,
While others are out at the shops.
Some mothers sit and read lots of books
And some talk and talk on the phone.
Some mothers stand about chatting in groups
While others stand quietly alone.
Some mothers are laden with carrier bags
Some stroll with their heads held high.
Some mothers always worry and fuss
And some mothers don’t even try.
Some mothers are like hens
With a whole brood of chicks,
Some mothers only have one.
Some mothers are always serious
And some are lots of fun.
Some mothers laugh very loudly,
Some have a stud in their nose,
Others wear the most peculiar hats
And some have red painted toes.
Some mothers drive a big posh car
And some ride around on a bike.
When I’m grown up and a mother myself
I wonder what I’ll be like?
All mothers are different;
(Mine wears a thermal vest),
And tho’ she isn’t perfect
I think I like my Mum the best. xxx
