Walk in the snow
Feed the baby
Cowboy hat
Wakey baby
Not over

Ode To Comments

Oh dear comments
How I love you
How you make my smile grow
When I see you in my e-mail
You give me a special glow
Comments, comments
There could never
Ever be enough of you
What a boost you give my ego
How my self esteem does boost
You make me feel happy inside
Sometimes I think,
"Famous? Me?"
Comments, comments
How I love you
How you fill my heart with glee

Still Here

Oh writing blog
I have not forgotten you
I just don't have time to write

Todays To-dos

Wash the dishes
Empty the dishwasher
Load the dishwasher
Clear off the table
Make the bed
Another coat of chalkboard paint
Pick up living room
Pick up bedroom
Pick up baby's room
Sort outgrown baby clothes
Take a shower
Take a nap
Make dinner
Think what to make for Christmas
Work on Christmas gifts
Make tomorrow's lunch
Get up off the couch

In Lamplight

Watching you get sleepy
Makes me sleepy
I wish we both were

Sometimes I forget to write
I must have an evil sprite
Living in some nearby nook
Who tells me I ought not to look
And see what I've forgot to do
Mean sprite, I blame it all on you

Jungle Bouncer

I'm really not sure
Why nursery prints
Include safari animals
If they were real
I would not let
My baby within
A hundred feet of them
And I'd really prefer
More distance than that

Leaves Change

Scarecrow in the corner
"Autumn" on the wall
Pumpkins on the bookshelf
That's how you know it's fall

Bath Time

Bath time!
Bath time!
Give a yell
Bath time!
Bath time!
Aint it swell
Bath time!
Bath time!
We can tell
When it's bath time
'Cause you smell!

Stitches of Life

Thinking through stitches
Gets tricky
I mess up a lot
The seam ripper is
An extension of my fingers
Is so much the same
Imperfection is
My middle name it seems
But I think
In the end
It won't matter so much
That the living room is messy
Everyone will just remember
How beautiful the dress turned out
How beautiful life turns out to be

The Last Place You Look

Little baby
Not asleep
And making more than a peep
Cranky, cranky
How it shows
Then we give it one more try
Turns out your diaper wasn't dry

A Reason Why

It's true
That any idiot can write haiku
But not every idiot does
I suppose
Is what gives me the right
And privilege
To publish

Walk A Bye Baby

Daddy looks
A little insane
Pacing back and forth
Back and forth
Back and forth
Rocking her to sleep
With his walking
Back and forth
Back and forth
Until she slumbers

Bunny Suit

Little pink
Cuddly cozy
Bunny baby
Sleeping in your suit
Snoozing in your snuggles
Looking at you
Makes me want to pick you up
And give you kisses
On your little bunny nose
But, alas
Tonight we will follow the old rule
And let sleeping bunnies lie

Wakey Wakey Rise and Shakey

Wakey wakey rise and shakey
Let the bacon start to bakey
Risin' in the early hours
Brushin' hair and takin' showers
Hurry hurry! Time to go!
It's time to start the day you know

May I never
Be foolish enough
To be stirred up
Unto anger

Eight O'Clock At the Oasis

Perhaps I have been watching
A little too much
Gilmore Girls
My speech is faster
I am extra witty
I know, I know
Who knew it was possible?
But it's true

Pass and go
There is always someone sprouting
And someone graciously wilting
Little by little
Time passes
People trade places
The old pass on
The young become old
They hardly notice
It's almost as if
One day one wakes up
A parent
And another wakes up
A grandparent
And another wakes up
Brand new
And someone else is six
There are always children
In between
The generation gaps
So much family
That it's almost hard
To notice the wheel of time
Like a planet on its axis
Like a ball around the sun
We become
The rising generation

Remembering when
Going to bed
At midnight
Was early
And lame

Remembering when
I wasn't sleepy
Playing until three o'clock
In the morning

Remembering when
I could sleep in
Until nine
Or ten
Or eleven o'clock

Good thing
I enjoyed it
While it lasted

In the Engine

Was searching
For the periodic table
I hope that they were able
To find it

Cozy October

Stripey shirts
Long sleeves
Socks and p.j.s
Layered sweaters
Double blankets
On the bed
Flannel soft
Christmas prints
Crawl under the covers
Shiver cold feet
Cozy warm

Suds Therapy

Life is always
A little easier
And it's easier to be
After a shower
And some clean clothes
