You can't stop progress, golden rule
Time to think of primary school!
Decisions loom for Mum and Dad;
Thomas, nearly four, has had
A happy, peaceful interlude
But soon his sister will intrude
Upon the scene post Christmas time
(An occasion for another rhyme?)
Meanwhile, upheavals in the home
Thomas soon won't be alone
Dad's office plans to sport a cot
Thomas's world will change – a lot!
Wide horizons hove in sight
The choice of school must be just right
But oh, what fun to make new friends
As school begins and child-care ends!
