The First Annual Pretty Much World Famous Valentiny Writing Contest!
I asked her for paper
Not plain paper, the coloured stuff.
I told her I need glue
I called out for glitter
I begged for scissors, the safe ones.
I nagged her for paint
I pouted for stickers
I asked her for ribbons and scraps from her scrap box
“Enough!” said Mummy in a big grumpy voice. “No more.
What do you need all these things for?”
I showed her the card
And she started to cry
Then her smile came out as big as the sky
We hugged so tight it warmed my heart
We sat on the floor and pasted together
She made a card just like mine
That’s why Mummy is my Valentine.
