A Day In The Life
Scrub a dub dub,
Two kids in a tub.
A splash and a giggle,
Fresh towel and a wiggle.
Wait, No! Dripping child, don't sit there!
A spritz of detangler
From the wet kiddie wrangler
As I drag the big comb through wet hair.
Shirt, pants, socks and shoes,
Half an hour of BLUE'S CLUES
Then we're hurriedly out the back door.
It's fifteen minutes in the car,
Though it isn't that far,
I'm exhausted once we've reached the store.
We make a game of our shopping,
Quick, no time for stopping,
And we make our way to the checkout stand.
Sort through all the coupons.
"Sorry, the kids opened the croutons."
And I place hard earned dough in his hand.
Now time for unloading.
And buckling both babes I `m holding
And then sluggishly make the home trip.
Fifteen minutes drive back,
Then tote in each full sack
Putting both sleepy tikes down to nap.
Stash away our supplies
While I rub tired eyes
Contemplating a snooze of my own.
It's only 1:00 now?
It just couldn't be! How?
But at last! I'm finally alone!
A short doze, a good read
And then a snack made with speed,
While I wait for the kids to awaken.
A few games of go fish,
A spilled cup, broken dish
Booboo kisses and a few snapshots taken.
Lord, my day is so long
Yet you keep me happy and strong
And You give me such joy in my children.
Sure there are days when I'd rather
There was someone else who could gather
And bath and feed and console
But Lord those thoughts are soon fleeting
When I hear the sweet greeting
I love you, Mommy
Thank You, Lord, for my role.
