Every month I post at least once over on The City Moms blog…
You can see all my past post here. I’m going to start sharing them here the week after they post on TCM.
But this month caught me a little off guard, but I was able to pull something together thanks to the inspiration from my child the night before going back to school after a two week break…
Here’s how it went…
‘Twas the night before going back to school at our house,
EVERY creature was stirring, even the dog for the dollhouse!
The clothes had been laid to wear the next day,
With denial that the school bus would again come their way.
Both my children were running and screaming and crying,
“I don’t want to go to bed or to school, it’s just so dissatisfying.”
Wearing my mismatched pajamas and dad asleep in the chair,
It was me screaming at the kids, oh I wish he could see my glare.
I thought we had made it, both kids laying in their beds.
Hoping for visions of great recess games in their heads.
When 11pm came, there were more tears than before,
I sprang from my bed to find those kids at my door.
