It Is Unsafe When Kids Are Unattended (Sunday Prompts)

Between the dark and the daylight

When the night is beginning to lower

comes a pause in the day’s occupations

that is known as the Children’s Hour

Dad is out of town,

Mom is talking on the phone,

Anna and Amanda playing horse back ride in the living room

When they suddenly hear a “boom”.

There is a bark outside the door,

While Anna pick up her book from the floor,

“Who can that be?”

Anna and Amanda hold hands to flee.

The day is dark outside,

Shivers make the girls’ heart beat like a drum,

It is unsafe when kids are unattended,

Glad to see them going upstairs to be with their Mom.

  1. Having been there many times when a noise or absence of noise is the trigger to go find the kids! Glad those times are over. Great illustrations.

  2. How interesting that, when I first read the phrase, “Children’s Hour,” I immediately assumed it was the time that parents spend with their children, having put away their jobs and adult responsibilities. And you presented it as a dangerous time when parents leave their children by themselves!

  3. It they’re quiet, check if they’re all right,
    If it’s noise you hear, it’s probably angels flying near,
    And if they hear a noise outside,
    It’s time for them to run and hide.

  4. that is very cute Jingle these children running up the stairs to be safe with their mom….thank you for posting and always supporting….blessings…bkm

  5. This is so beautifully done and such an enjoyable read. Love the underlying caution too so gently expressed 🙂 Care should surely be taken to avoid dangers and mistakes.

  6. Everything’s a little scarier with Daddy out of town. Glad they’re heading for safety with Mom! 😉 Works well with the prompt and the image.
