Sod off sleepiness nights of breastfeeding
Au revoir co-sleeping.
Good bye constant pawing
Cheerio to the sling
Laters smooshed potatoes, crushed into my sofa.
If I never see another nappy, crappy knicker, snotty tramline,
Bitten nipple, crying toddler, finger-jamming cupboard locker
It’ll be far, far too soon
I watch my daughters as they grow up
Full of pride, guilt and relief
That they’re pretty wonderful
And that I’m turning a new leaf.
