A Poem for my son

Just wrote this for my son. Will read it tomorrow to him when he wakes up.

A Matter of Mater

One day t’was too hot,

To go out to play.

So my Mama brought

A little rabbit to stay.

The rabbit was white

With small bits of black;

Wasn’t it a sight

Running on the track?

The track of the trains,

Of Wilson and Koko,

Thomas and James,

Get ready set GO!

The track was an eight

For the trains to run

But rabbit went straight

What a lot of fun!

And then Mama asked,

“What will you name him?”

“Mater!” I stated

“Is the best name for him.”

My Mama asked why,

 I said “There’s no doubt,

The reason is simply

His teeth are sticking out!”

Daily Prompt: Three-Tenths (Mater rescues McQueen)

My 3 1/2 yr old son loves making up stories and combines all his favorite characters and settings. If he had been asked to write down 10 words, choose 3 out of them and write a post, here is what he would have come up with…

Mater rescues McQueen (The Chosen 3 words)

It was a beautiful morning and McQueen was very excited. Today he was going to race the fire engine all round the island of Sodor. But there was a loud scary sound coming from one side and McQueen forgot all about the race. Instead he went to check what the matter was. Suddenly a huge big dinosaur jumped out and scared McQueen.

“Aaaah” said McQueen and tried to run. But his wheels were stuck in sticky brown mud and he couldn’t move. “Help!” cried McQueen. “I’m in trouble! Help!”

Mater raced out of the barn to help his friend. But the dinosaur jumped in front of him.

“I’m trying to save my friend, please move out of the way” said Mater.

“I won’t if you don’t listen to me” answered the dinosaur.

“Why do you make scary sounds if you can talk?” said Mater in surprise.

“Because no one listens to me” replied the dinosaur.

“Ok, what do you want to say?” said Mater.

“Will you play with me?”

“Oh is that all? Of course! But first let me rescue my friend”.  Mater puts his hook on McQueen and pulls him out of the mud.

Now Mater, McQueen, the dinosaur and the fire engine can all race together. Ready Set Go!
