Would You Like To Be Me?

I hear by dedicate this epic masterpiece, this historic work of art to all mothers, old and young, many kids or no kids.
And when I'm rich and famous for it, I will share the wealth with everyone who leaves a comment! Because then I'll know who really loves me.
And when I'm not so rich and famous, I hope you commentors won't hold any grudges. After all, there's no guarantee in this business. Some crazy person might not consider it a masterpiece and ruin all my plans for fame and fortune.

Party poopers.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my day as much as I did.

Would You Like To Be Me?

The day starts so early the night went too fast
I fall out of bed, nearly earning a cast
The kids are all up, but happy they‘re not
I’m ready to put them back in bed on the spot

The house is a wreck the dishes are high
There’s laundry to do and I heave a big sigh
There’s no time to think, its time to just do
Perhaps I could bury my head in a shoe

Alayna has an infection in her right ear
The medicine makes her stomach hurt and easy to hear
Her cough is harsh and makes her quite sad
For the last three days it has been really bad

Jacob, his cough has been fairly light
But unfortunately his bottom is in quite a plight
The diapers and clothes he keeps leaking right through
Tend to get on me so I smell like his poo

Joseph, poor kid, his fever is high
His cough is horrific and there’s pink in his eye
He’s been sleeping all day, really quite sound
So he wet the couch then slept on the ground

Savannah is healthy and sassy as ever
Teaching her to behave is quite the endeavor
No one told me that I was getting a teen
Trapped inside a four-year old dream

We just bought a house, this week it came about
At the end of the month we have to be out
Which leaves me eight days to pack everything
Or else the renters will start pulling strings

Its bedtime now and Luke is at work
So I’m left all alone there’s no time to shirk
I give the kids baths, there’s water everywhere
At the rate things are going, will I still have hair?

And yet those darn kids, once they are tucked in their beds
Scream “Good night! I love you!” As I kiss their small heads
Those monkeys are lucky I think they’re so cute
Or else long ago I’d have given them the boot

With so much to do, why in the world do I blog?
I can’t help myself this is my time to defog
And like it or not you are reading to see
If just for one day you’d like to be me.

Congratulations on the house! Good luck with the packing. I'm so sorry the kids are sick. My sister-in-law's been dealing with those illnesses as well as strep with her 3 kids since New Year's. SO excited to see them all this weekend..... :-) Well done on the poem. Quite clever.

What a funny poem. You are so creative. Sorry your kids are sick. We are heading out to Utah for the weekend today, but when I get back you can bring the kids over so you can pack. My phone is back call me because all my numbers got deleted and I don't have yours anymore.
Good luck!

I want to be like you when I grow up...but not on this particular day. =) Congrats on the house and I hope the kids are better soon!

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

LOL, I let you know when I get around to growing up too.
Thanks everyone! We are really excited about the house, and I hope my kids feel better too! There's only so many diapers one can handle changing in a day.

Brittney said...

ooooooooooh a new house?? Pictures please!?? Did you buy it without debt?? :) That would be a feat, but I've heard of some people doing it...

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Sadly no, we took out a loan. It would have been really nice but if we aimed for that we would have lived in an apartment for many more years and with all the kids, well, it would have been rough.
But I promise to post pictures and tell you all about it very soon! We will probably move out of our apartment this weekend.
