An A-Z of Children’s Stories – day 9


az headeri



It’s on the table

look, up there.

But I can’t reach it,

it’s not fair!


I could grab this leg

and shake and shake.

But when it falls

it might break.


Even up

on tippy-toes

how I’ll get it

goodness knows.


Suppose I climb

up on this chair?

 I don’t like heights,

 don’t think I dare.


I give up

I’ll let it be.

It’s not easy

being three.

      I remember in the 60’s we had shoes with massive bottoms on them which made you look much taller!

    I totally empathise. I’m many times three, but face the same problem . A bit vertically challenged, if you know what I mean. 🙂

    As an adult, I sometimes exploit this problem – the toddler I nannied last summer had a knack of getting things he wasn’t supposed to, so putting them up where he couldn’t reach was a trick I learned very quickly.

    My 4 year old grandson would be up on that chair before you could say, “get down”. He has always been a climber.

      I’m often asked to reach things for people in supermarkets! Cheers Debbie

    It sure is difficult being three years old. But childhood days are the best!

    Yes, the life of a kid is always toughest. My kid’s blog always proves that point
