MOTHER'S DAY


So, since it is mother’s day this weekend I decided to go ahead and re-post the poem I wrote about being a mom.
So, you will have to suffer through it if you already saw it last year. (which I highly doubt, since I think I only have about five readers)…

I am 45 feeling 25 and still thinking I am pretty cool, and I see that a lot of my friends feel the same way. It's just our kids that don't.

Anyhow, Happy Mothers Day to you all. And this is how I feel most of the time!!

MOM's

you shave your legs
you cut your hair
you wax your lip
but you still aren't there

you pierce your ears
and then your navel
there are other places
but you just aren't able

you can't find your keys
where are your glasses
is that all you get
as the time passes

you're not ready for purple
the red hat is a sin
you've got to be kidding
is that a third chin
you accept the wrinkle
put the bronzer away
you look at your daughter
today is her day
