An Oldie, but a Goodie!

Happy Mother's Day!

I am so happy I chose to be a Mother. :)

And, keeping with the theme, here is an old, but good(!) poem I wrote and posted on the blog almost 3 years ago about Motherhood. I like it quite a lot and I hope you do to. It is a little odd. Just remember there are two voices. To see the original posting, click here.

Who Likes It?

Who likes cleaning up messes?

Not me.


. . .

Who like doing dishes?

Not me!

oh, . . .

. . .

Who likes enforcing discipline?

Not ME!

oh . . .

hmm . . .
. . . . . . . . . . .

Who likes sweet snuggles?

I do


Who likes playing and puzzles?

I do!


Who likes hugs and kisses and Dandelion wishes and

smiles just because you came in the room?

I do!!


Who loves being a Mother?

We do.

Oh yeah . . .


And to finish off, a quote or two that I love about Motherhood.

I've got more children than I can rightly take care of, but I ain't got more than I can love.

~Ossie Guffy

I looked on child rearing not only as a work of love and duty but as a profession that was fully as interesting and challenging as any honorable profession in the world and one that demanded the best that I could bring to it.

~Rose Kennedy

P.S. I don't know why the spacing is so BIG, but I don't know how to make it have normal spacing. If anybody know how to correct this problem, please let me know!!!

My favorite line of your poem is: "Who likes hugs and kisses and dandelion wishes and smiles just because you came in the room?"
Also, I LOVE the quote by Rose Kennedy. It is one of my favorites.
Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!!!
