Firstborn to Eve and Craig and first grandchild
For moi – the pregnancy was quite OK
But labour long and hard as first attempts
Are wont to be. Eve coped so well but babe
Was near ten pound; she nearly made it, he
Was just too big, so Caesar had to be.
The Womens’ shined, and kept it safe; though both
Exhausted, Eve and Craig so happy. Home
To Burnley, Craig had toiled for long to get
It ready; babe so cute and seems relaxed
Like both his parents, likes to arch his back.
The cats are looking on in awe at this
Big boy, big Barry Shell, just one month old
And rolling over – off and running! Eve
Just looks a natural. So here’s to all!
