little poem

I have so much to share and post about! God's awesome and life is nuts, as per usual. Congrats to my dear friend, Lindsey and her new husband, Seth! Congrats to my childhood friend, Stephanie and their new baby boy! I wish I had more time to write, but for now, I will share a little poem I wrote.

Ode to Summer Vacation

In the stillness of the morning
The sunbeams peaking through,
I breathe afresh the newness
And catch a whiff of poo.

The robins singing sweetly
The lovebirds softly coo,
The TV blares the siren of
Some awful kid’s cartoon.

It’s summer in the suburbs
The trees are full and green.
My kids are fighting to the death
And I’m the referee.

My coffee’s getting colder
As I count from one to three,
It’s time-out number thirty-one
But it only bothers me.

I’m blessed to have this special time
To share my children’s lives;
I’m grateful to be here with them
Each day’s a new surprise.

The toilet’s overflowing now,
Another piercing cry,
I think my son is bleeding, still
I have to go! Goodbye!

Yep ... that's how I remember my summers growing up and I'm sure I'll experience them as a mom very soon!
