No compare

Please don’t compare my child to yours

Don’t turn us into milestone whores

Don’t tell me what mine should do

When she should sleep, eat and poo.

It’s great to hear how proud you are

Of your own special little star

But children grow in their own way

Getting stronger every single day

Each child is so wonderfully unique

Yet they all learn to eat, pee and to speak

Safe and secure in the love we give

They all will work out how best to live

So stop your incessant drone

And just leave us the fuck alone

P.S. I'm not a poet, and yes, I know it.
