This chalkboard style poem print is a unique gift for new parents, expecting parents, or fantastic parents - whether it's a birth, a christening, or an emotional thank you to Mum and Dad.

The A4 print comes unframed with a white 3mm border but we would be happy to frame it for you.

Written by award-winning Bespoke Verse poet Joanna Miller who is a mum of three, this poem began life as a gift for a pregnant friend. The chalkboard design is by Russet and Gray.

Whether it's a dollop of devotion or a tablespoon of challenge, every parent can identify with these very real ingredients!

You can add a short personalised message at the bottom of the print for an extra fee - see image for an example.

The poem is created by printing a black background onto the highest quality GF Smith white A4 card (350gsm) using Dura-Bright waterproof ink. There is no mount around the print. Each print has a 3mmm white border and is lovingly produced to order. Unframed prints arrive flat, wrapped in cellophane, in a super stiff envelope. For an extra fee we can frame the print for you. The lightweight wooden frame we use is slim and black. It has a hook for wall hanging. The front is perspex. Each frame is hand finished in the UK by Fine Art Trade Guild commended framers. The product is dispatched in a purpose-made picture box.

The print is H30 x W21cm (A4) and when framed is H32.5 x W23.5 x D1.2 cm.

A Recipe for Parenthood

A dollop of devotion

A dash of dedication

A smattering of sleepless nights

And a drop of education.

A tablespoon of challenge

A teaspoon of affection

A pinch or two of worry

And a drizzle of protection.

A grain or two of patience

A soupcon of surprise

A sprinkling of laughter

And a splash of compromise.

A spot of wit and cunning

A slice of perspiration

An ounce of hope and wonder

And a cup of conversation.

Mix up the ingredients

As listed up above,

Serve with lashings of support

And unconditional love.
