    A funny and honest family poem print in A4 size with funky typographic design.

    Our witty and heartfelt family print makes the perfect gift for parents, siblings and friends - whether it's for a birthday, christening, Christmas, Mother's Day, or becoming a new parent. 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 21 line poem captures the fun times, the not so fun times(!) and the unrivalled bond we share with our families.

    Whether it's relying, crying or a little white lying, everyone will recognise the experiences described in 'What is a Family?'

    The font choice is: Purple, Red, Dark Blue, Light Blue, Taupe.

    We would be happy to frame the print for you using our white wooden custom-made frames.

    For an additional fee, you are welcome to add a short message (max 8 words) at the bottom of the poem.

    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!
