Alarm clock didn't sound today
Ran in late to work
Got a speeding ticket on the way
Policeman was a jerk
Missed a meeting - spilled my coffee
Look as frazzled as I feel
Tripped while running down the stairs
Now my shoe's without a heel
Ever have a day like this?
I'm trying hard to cope
Still I think I'd miss the water
If I fell out of a boat!

A little help, PLEASE?!

My two-year-year-old won't wear his clothes
The laundry's dirty - the grass needs mowed
Oldst boy won't take a nap
One more whine will make me snap!
The cat keeps wanting in and out
And what's this phone bill all about?
Make a call dispute the charge
Notice that my butt looks large
All day long it goes like this
Everything is all amiss
I'm up a crick I just don't know
Won't someone get in my boat and row?!

Answers from Above

I believe in God and I pray to Him a lot
I have faith that He hears me and my prayers are not forgot
His answers come mysteriously and I'm often left confused
(At times I wish He'd make an announcement in the news!)
I know that life's a journey and I must keep on believing
There's always another goal I'm working towards achieving
I'm told that this life's process is part of my own pilgrimage
But answers through the mail would ROCK! (I'd even pay the postage!)

I am outnumbered in our humble home
With two little boys and one who is grown
You might also know the cat's even male
At times I feel stuck in testosterone jail!
Hot wheels and tinker toys litter our floor
They cause injured feet, but we keep adding more
Baseball is played in our living room space
And what's an afternoon without a hardwood floor race?
Even my big boy joins in with the fun
(He seems to forget it's our kids who are young)
I love 'em to bits but there's one thing I hate
The bathrrom's a place that can make me irrate!!
Why's it so hard to put the toilet seat down?
It's what you should do when girls are around
And while we are on the subject of peeing
Puddles on the floor are very displeasing!
Still I love being the mom of two little boys
Life's always exciting with tons to enjoy
A day can't go by when they don't make me laugh
(There's always a storm when they take a bath...)
I'm forever behind with the week's house hold chores
No matter the work done - there's constantly more
Yes I am outnumbered -- I'm THE only chick
But I know I am loved from the dandelions they pick!

Finding God's Path

What do I do next, God?
What do I do next?
I feel like every day
Is one more big failed test
Ask and it will be given
Seek and Ye shall find
I'm asking and I'm seeking
Yet I think I'm going blind!
Everywhere I look it's dark
I can't seem to find my way
What's my purpose in this life?
I ask it every day
I'm on my knees and in your word
Still I feel confused
I trust in the Lord with all my heart
This is what you have me choose
Please God save me from my mind
Take captive every thought
Your wisdom is unlimited
You know best - I do not
Help my God to persevere
Keep trusting day by day
Though I may not see my path
You will lead me the right way.

Matthew 7:7
Ask and it will given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. (NIV)
Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. (NIV)
Romans 5: 3-4
Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character hope. (NIV)

Roll out of bed
Wash off the crusted drool
Fix kids a breakfast
Get the oldest off to school
Start a load of laundry
Clean-up breakfast plates
Play a game of peek-a-boo
Arrange a dinner date
Change the laundry
Fold some clothes
Put away where it goes
Back to school
Pick up the kid
Lunchtime now
Where's my tupperware lid?
Put the kids down for a nap
Make my grocery list
Do more laundry put away
Did I feed the fish?
Kids wake up
Outside to play
Toys all over
Beautiful day
Back inside
Made some grub
Kiss the hubby
Sneak a hug
Little bit of family time
Now kids take a bath
Read a book turn off the light
Finally peace at last
Litte ones now sound asleep
Get the chore list out
A day's work done in just an hour
Time left to think about
Tomorrow's schedule in my hand
Though I know not why
It's never followed anyway
No matter if I try!

My Hero

He's my quirky kid, with the sandy blonde hair
Daunting his brand new Batman underwear
He likes to run, skip, jump, and play
When he's covered in dirt, it's been a good day
There's always a smile on his sweet little face
(And he's a sure thing when Mommy needs an embrace!)
I'm always amazed at his imaginative mind
And thoroughly amused at the creations I find
A little child's table becomes his big stage
With guitar in hand he soon does engage
In a little rock song for his younger brother
(Sometimes he even gets a little help from his mother)
Then he is off, with toy guns at his side
Protecting the family atop the yard slide
Running past bushes and to the driveway
Transformed to a superhero saving the day
Time for some milk and a quick cookie snack
Our hero's refreshed and ready to go back
Butch, the housecat is now ready for battle
They're off to defeat the neighboring cattle
I call for dinner as nighttime is falling
Though rubbing his eyes, he now begins stalling
He brushes his teeth - kisses Mommy goodnight
And though he's exhausted, the sleep he does fight
Slowly but surely he falls fast asleep
I check in his room without making a peep
Think back on the day as I watched him gallivant
Rememb'ring most of it spent without any pants!


It's so hot outside
You can see heat waves with your eyes
It's no real surprise
Why this season's despised
I know I'm not wise
But I have devised
A way to compromise
When the heat's on the rise
Please don't scrutinize
Or try to dramatize
Because I won't apologize
For being.........

I forgot to forget the nausea and the swelling of the feet
I forgot to forget the backaches and the nights without sleep
I forgot to forget the pain of birth, the time, and the place
I forgot to forget the tears when I first saw his face
I forgot to forget the feeling of overwhelming joy
What a wondrous thing to remember, the birth of my boy!

This One's For the Moms!

This poem goes out to young mothers everywhere
We must bond together and reach out in care
There is such relief when I hear a mom say
"I know what you mean, I've felt the same way!"
It all started with my first pregnancy
Then carried out past the child's infancy
I couldn't remember one single thing
I swore that my brain was unraveling
I shared my great fear with my dear sister-in-law
She sweetly said "It's 'Pregnancy Stupids' that's all!"
How long with this last? Will I be dumb forever?
Will I lose all my wit and never be clever?
She said not to worry it surely would pass
(But she never did say how long it would last...)
My oldest is four and my youngest is two
Still I don't think my 'Prego Stupids' are through
Does this sound familiar? Can you relate?
No matter the woman - is this her fate?
At times I think back when I was fun, slim, and witty
(You know what I mean if your kid's itty bitty)
I REALLY miss my body and my once fertile brain
And yet there's nothing about which to complain
My life with kids is great - there's nothing I want to miss
And as far as my brains - they say that ignorance IS bliss!


It's very VERY early, the sun ain't even shining
But the family's awake 'cause the youngest boy is crying
It's not because he's scared, in pain, or even sick
He just wants a drink of water and crying's his new trick
I know I should be thankful that the day has now begun
I've got two more extra hours to get all my stuff done
However I am cranky because all I want is sleep
Frustration is now growing - through my pores it starts to seep
So before I start my work and all my chores today
I get down on my knees and to my Lord I pray...
"Please be with me God, stop me feeling bad like this
And help me take KILL CHILD off of my 'TO DO' list!"
