Saturday Centus: Deviled Eggs

Once again Saturday has rolled around, and that means it's time for the Saturday Centus blog challenge from Jenny Matlocks blog. This weeks challenge is a photo prompt and we are to write 100 words in rhyming form using this picture.




If youd like to give this a try (its a LOT of fun) or read more blog entries you can check them out HERE. Now on to my entry.


Little fingers creeping over so slowly,
Across the counter they inch towards the plate.
Blue eyes watching moms face so closely,
If she was caught, who knew her fate.
Almost to the plate, and mom cracks a smile,
Hands her a deviled egg and places a finger to her lips.
As parents we have to play along once in awhile,
Indulging little ones and not always with denial.
A smile and a hug, and away she will run,
All to soon she will be grown, moved, gone.
Relax and love, have some fun,
And cherish every stroke made with crayon.

  2. My son dislikes eggs prepared most ways, except for deviled. Like me, he would eat those by the dozen!
