Little Man Copycat.
Little man fourteen months old,
Not doing what he's been told.
Big brother is the reason why,
What big brother does, he will try.
Big brother climbs on the chair,
Bounces up and down, without a care,
He's told he shouldn't do that at all,
Because it's possible he could fall.
Several warnings seem to work,
Little man watching with a cheeky smirk.
With jovial smile he'll take his chance
Clambers up and take mischievous stance.
He knows exactly what I am going to say,
But he'll definitely jump come what may.
I have to rescue him while he's standing there
And perch myself upon that tempting chair.
Big brother doing funny faced dance routine,
Little man interested in what he's seen.
Waiting now for little man to react,
Within no time it becomes a Double act.
Growing and learning day in day out,
Treasured moments without a doubt.
The day will come when copying ends,
Live their own lives as Sibling friends.
