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!
