My Ode To You Mothers...

"My second favorite household chore is ironing. My first being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint." -- Erma Bombeck-

"Mothers are all slightly insane."
-- J.D. Salinger

This is my ode
To the moms of the earth
Who loves them some babies
After their birth

(oooo this is good, right?)

I give my salute
To the hard work you do
Cleaning up dishes, and laundry
And green baby poo

I salute your resolve,
And the load that you carry
For I know when you dreamt about this
It wasn't THAT scary

But who else could do it?
You know you’re the star
Your house is still standing
And the kids and hubby are alive, so far…

And for those who work
Outside of the home
I must say you are tougher
Than Tina Turner in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

(stay with me it might get better…)

And I take off my hat
To those with a brood
You’re husband must be thankful
That you’re still “in the mood”!

And for all of us moms
With saggy skin and parts
Your behind may not be taut
But you’ve all got great hearts

Since I too am a mom
This was the best I could muster
Please don’t stop reading my blog
Because this was lack-luster

So Happy Mothers Day
To all of you I shout
You’re all rockstars and heros, I love ya,
Peace out.

Hey Lola...are you in my closet right now? Because I have been hearing weird muffled fart noises...just trying to determine when "yet" is, I have a problem being patient, and not overly freaked out...
