child learning to tie shoelaces

SoCS August 24/19 Over, under and through

Over, under and through:

It seems like yesterday

I was teaching her

To tie her shoelaces,

Over, under and through.

We watched Sesame Street’s

“Tying your shoelace” song;

I punched holes in cardboard

And threaded them with a shoelace

For her to practise on.

It took a little while,

But she was determined.

Practising and practisong

Till she got it right.

Now she is a young adult

Starting a career

With that same determination.

I look forward to the day

When I can teach her children too :

Over, under and through.
