Bright for his age,
he wants chips with everything,
knows that beans means Heinz
and will drink anything
if it's not too hot.
He's got two Gran-mas
and is proud of the fact.
He shuts all doors behind him,
switches on the television,
but only after asking.
All telephone calls are from Grandma.
His eyes are bright with mischievousness;
Each morning he says hello
to the face in the mirror,
pulls his Daddy out of bed,
then fetches him his clothes
in order, one by one.
He can find the things that Mummy mislays
but leaves his own clothes where they drop.
Vainer than any girl,
he is defiant yet loves to obey.
Sometimes he knows what you are thinking
before you do yourself.
He is my son. I love him.
