limerick challenge #10

This is week ten of my limerick challenge which feels like something of a milestone… we’re into the double digits now!

My challenge this week was to write about a bear which, thankfully, was another straightforward rhyme (I’m fully expecting another tricky one soon!) I wrote it – with the boys’ help – in the car on Friday then forgot all about it until we were about to go out today to take them to their grandparents for a few days.

“Oh no!” I said, “You haven’t drawn me a picture yet!” so my six-year-old hurriedly did one. There was no time for his little brother to do any drawing though, so this week’s post is a bit light on illustrations. Here’s the limerick anyway:


A trend-setting, young grizzly bear

Who was bored of his straight, mid-brown hair

Said “A purple bouffant

Is the hairstyle I want!”

The results really made people stare!

    Thanks Jess! Considering he didn’t know what a bouffant was until I wrote the limerick I thought he did a pretty good picture!
