My Family: A Foodie Poem By My 10-Year Old

My Family: A Foodie Poem By My 10-Year Old

By Schoen Amidor

Here’s a poem my son wrote for his 5th grade class comparing his family to a restaurant. He is my budding foodie poet and let me tell you, this poem will really hit home for many of you!

My Family

My family is like a restaurant.
My sisters are the customers always complaining.
My mom is the chef working all the time.
My dad is the manager checking everything twice.
I am the waiter giving out everything.
My family is like a restaurant always 24/7.


Please leave notes of encouragement for my son, Schoen. I would love him to continue to write food blogs for me from a 10-year old’s perspective and have been asking him to do so for a while.

    I loved your food poem and you are so right about your family, you forgot your Safta’s (grandmother) role in your 24/7 restaurant what would it be?
