A modern abstract Mommy poem
by Hannah, Editor-in-chief
I need to make a to-do list right now
or I'll never remember all of these things.
That bird is huge up there in the tree
and it has red stripes on it's wings.
The baby needs to be fed some table food
and I really hope she doesn't put her hands in her hair.
Why does chocolate make you fat?
Really, it is seriously not fair.
It's not fair, it's not right,
"You two, I better not hear you fight!".
Oh, good, pork loin is on sale again this week
Why do some say "Crick" and others say "Creek"?
I'm tired and I'd like some coffee.
I don't have time to do all this laundry.
Today is Monday, so we need all the dirty towels.
I'm so glad that she finally learned those vowels.
"Reading is fun, isn't it, Dear?".
I better remember to give the pork a good sear
Before I put it in the oven to roast.
"Did you say that you want toast...
Or did you say you want a muffin?"
I need to exercise more. I'm really huffin'
And puffin' as I walk from child to child.
Wasn't that story about the dogs completely wild?
It reminds me a little of a Jack London or something
What was it that I was supposed to bring
To the meeting at her house tonight?
Oh, these new LED lighbulbs aren't nearly as bright.
"You should ask her to stop, not hit her with your fist."
Now, where was I? Oh, yes...the to-do list.
