In honor of the back to school season, I wanted to share a photo of my kids on their first day back along with a poem I just wrote. I hope you enjoy it!
Twas the day school started and all through the streets
all the moms came outside to start moving their feet.
In cool exercise clothes and new tennis shoes
you could tell all these ladies were ready to cruise.
Pushing strollers and jogging and riding their bikes
wearing Ipods and ready for three mile hikes.
Was it 5, was it 10, or 15 pounds that was gained
of course lack of exercise for sure was to blame.
With the kids all at home mom had to entertain
come on, admit it, they really drove you insane.
Vacations and camps and still they were bored
add playdates and sleepovers and movies galore.
Never time for mom, it was all for the kids
tending to them was really all that you did.
But now our great teachers give us a few hours each day
relax, kick back, even have some sorbet.
Be sure to laugh, smile and have lots of fun
before you know it, the school day is done.
On to homework, dinner and then off to soccer
showers and bed, the day’s over, what a shocker!
Leave the laundry and dishes and turn out the lights
Give the kids all a hug and a big kiss goodnight!
