Stack up the play doh buckets.
Brisk into the room elegantly.
I did it!
Plop! Plop! Plop!
The buckets topple.
I mess up!
Pick it up again
Stack up again
I did it!
Plop! Plop! Plop!
The buckets topple again.
I mess up!
Having fun to balance walking
Bringing play doh buckets stacks.

My toddler enjoys to play ‘play doh’ clay. My house rule is to clean and tidy up after play. For the first time, he chooses to stack up the ‘play doh’ buckets. He wants to learn the circus way of balancing. Wish you all have good days and thank you.
Purposely tear tiny crumbs of
Banana cakes onto the table for ants
Ants gather it to nest

Animal wheels with
Red giraffe, blue cow, yellow duck and white sheep
Soft toys are
Whirling around as the wind blows
In the night
The red giraffe jumps down
Onto the toddler
Play with him
The toddler giggles
As the giraffe giggles
A sweet dream

The wheel with many four animals soft toys are always under my son’s bed. He dreamed the giraffe soft toy jumped onto him and tickled his neck. He narrated it with his gestures and expressions wriggled in laughter. He misunderstood it as nightmare. Therefore, I explained to him it was a nice dream, not a nightmare. A nightmare involves in fearful feelings. Wish you all have good days and thank you.
Erupt out of dorayaki
Noticing a toddler
With an evil hungry look
Dorayaki chases after him
He is startled
As it approaches him
The whole dorayaki
Inspiration On: Sunday, 17 August 2014 during midnight to evening

A Dorayaki chased after him and going to gulp him. Wriggling in fear, he shouted in fear, “STOP!!!” The Dorayaki froze. And the position reversed. It was his turn to eat and munch the frozen Dorayaki. This happened during midnight as my toddler cried in his sleep and shouted in his sleep, “STOP!!!” Then he calmed down and continued his sleep. His dad went near him as I was soundly asleep due to anti-depressants. Wish you all have good days and thank you.
T-shirt pulls upwards with wrinkles
Scratching all over body without tuck in
Causing wind enters into stomach
Stomach pain due to wind
Dances all over the stomach wall happily
Unless fart to eliminate pain

My dear 45 months toddler was sleeping, but he still could feel itchy and scratch himself. It was a very surprising discovery. Unconsciously, we still feel itchy during sleep even hot and cold. I am still questioning why my toddler feels itchy at night? Wish you all have good days and thank you.
Days to grow a bunch of hair
But it only takes
A day to have a bald head

Thinking if my son’s hair is gone, his round head will look much rounder. This makes me laugh to myself and births out this poetry. This haiku (in progress) has been sitting for more than two weeks. I have been reading and referred to it again in order to connect it well. Wish you all have good days.
Target a snack pack
Signalling feet and hands
Pull a chair to open fridge
To gulp food
Knowing whose footsteps
Knowing opened snacks packs
A pair of speedy hands and feet
Snatch snack packs
From my hands
Ready to swallow
Speedy brain, hands and feet
Speedy body parts
Nobody in the house
Able to stop him
His fast motion
