The Cold Cup of Tea
An already-cold cup of builder’s-strength tea
Is sat by the sink, and saying to me:
“I’m delicious, delightful, so drink me up, do!”
But I’m knee-deep in children, and nappies, and poo.
So call me again, when I’ve sorted this mess,
And have time to relax, and unwind and de-stress.
Later, much later, when the kids are asleep,
In my nightie and slippers I quietly creep
To the kitchen, and there is that cold cup of tea,
Still delicious, still delightful, and still waiting for me…
Mother’s Milk Books is a small, family-run press that publishes high-quality, beautiful books for adults and children that normalize breastfeeding and celebrate femininity and empathy. There are few books on the market that illustrate the natural beauty of the breastfeeding mother-child dyad, and Mother’s Milk Books aims to change that!
Each book sold helps to raise funds for La Leche League.
