Written by Bespoke Verse poet Joanna Miller, this poem appeared in VOGUE in December 2012.
Whether she's a fairy cake baker, a tireless clapper or a list compiler, everyone will recognise the heroine described in 'What is a Mum?'
What is a Mum?
A weaner & musher, a milky tooth brusher
A rocker & feeder, a storytime reader
A fairy cake baker & fancy dress maker
A wiper & washer & bad habit squasher
A dirty sheet changer, a room rearranger
A keen stain remover, a wielder of hoover
A peeler & cooker, appointment booker
A loyal defender & Christmas card sender
A playdate arranger, alerter of danger
A suitcase packer, a dishwasher stacker
A be quiet hisser, a cuddly kisser
An early riser, a birthday surpriser
A list compiler, a proud parent smiler
A talented wrapper, a tireless clapper
A lavatory flusher, a praiser & gusher
A listening ear, a good refereer
A source of a fiver, a free taxi driver
A smoothie blender & broken heart mender
A consummate shopper, embarrassing bopper
A grocery bagger & homework nagger
Thats what makes a Mum!
