Mama's Definition of Labor Day

In honor of Monday's holiday, here is another perspective on Labor Day -
it is not always celebrated in September. :o)

Forty-two weeks,
ready to go.
Off to the hospital
for baby to show.

Contractions increase,
"Breathe 1-2-3!"
Can't get comfy,
do what with my knees?

Finally Doc says,
"Give a big push!"
Out comes baby,
head, belly and tush.

There's My Family

There's my puppy
laying on the floor,
sleeping, snuggling
that dog can snore.

There's my sister
talking on her phone,
yada-yada, blah-blah-blah
super loud ringtone.

There's my mom
coming in from a run,
red faced, panting
sweating a ton.

There's my dad
coming home from work,
mumbling, grumbling
his boss is a jerk.

Secret to Long Hair

If I leave it alone
my hair grows, grows, grows.
Then down my back
my hair flows, flows, flows.

Picnic Postponed

We're going on a picnic,
my family and me.
We see the perfect table
under a big oak tree.

But as we get closer
with our baskets in hand,
we decide maybe we need
a totally new plan.

Apparently this spot
is under some busy birds,
because the tabletop is covered
in an abundance of turds.
