John Thomas came to stay today,

To explore the house and pet and play.

First, he spotted the garland shiny

It wrapped round and round that boy so tiny.


 Soon he had enough of that stuff

Now he wants to play…and rough!

Here comes Finn, see him run

He only wants to join the fun.


OK Finn, be on your way

There’s more we want to do today.

We snacked and rocked and took a nap

All the while in Aunt Tonja’s lap.

Awwww, Mommy’s here…time to go

Buckle up… there you go!

Come back soon…we’ll play again

Until then…be sweet, Little Man.




  1. AWWWWW, that's precious—poem and BOY!!

    What a day that must have been, and how you must have stored it in your treasure box!

    I still recall hundreds of days like that, with my own, with nieces and nephews, friends' children, children from church, little ones I'd just stop and borrow on a random afternoon—boy were their Mom's always grateful!

    I love this, and hope he visits you often, so we can share. A sweet, happy, wonderful First Christmas to that Sweet young man!!


  2. What a cute poem and an even cuter fellow! What a wonderful Nonny you will be. By the way, what will your *little* call you?

  3. Just look at the big smile. He is so cute. So glad you got to spend the day with him.
    I love him all decorated in the garland.
