A witty, affectionate family poem in a gorgeous chunky beech frame.
Our witty framed family print makes the perfect gift for new parents, experienced parents, siblings and friends - whether it's for a birthday, christening, Christmas, Mother's Day. Touchingly, it is also a popular gift for newly adopting families, which makes us very proud!
Written by our award-winning poet Joanna Miller, this A6 poem captures the fun times, the not so fun times(!) and the unrivalled bond we share with our families.
The font is taupe and the design was by Russet and Gray.
Whether it's relying, crying or a little white lying, everyone will recognise the experiences described in 'What is a Family?'
The text reads:
What is a Family?
It’s sharing, comparing, bonding & caring
It’s hugging & squeezing, talking & teasing
It’s praising & knowing, belonging & growing
It’s guiding, providing, trusting, confiding
It’s loving & kissing, nurturing, missing
It’s working & playing, treating & paying
It’s arguing, fighting & often delighting
It’s visiting, hosting & Sunday roasting
It’s relaxing & boring, most reassuring
It’s coaxing & charming, appeasing & calming
It’s waiting, debating, fulfilling, elating
It’s needing & feeding & tactful conceding
It’s driving, conniving, learning & thriving
It’s holding & nursing, worrying, cursing
It’s stressing, confessing & making a messing
It’s loaning & moaning, helping & phoning
It’s bickering, laughing, bedding & bathing
It’s listening, coping, planning & hoping
It’s relying, crying, a little white lying
It’s forgiving & mending, liking, depending
That’s what makes a family!
