Haiku Friday: Wake Me Up Before We Go-Go
Alarm clock rings and
I hit snooze three times before
I know it. We’re late!
Just a couple of
Hours since I was up with the
Baby. Ugh. So tired.
Shower time. I wish
For caffeinated soap. Nope.
All clean but still beat.
Then comes the mad rush:
Kids up, clothes on, potty break,
Baby changed, dogs out …
… Dogs in, cat out, socks
Matched, shoes found, cat in, cat out,
(Damn cat!), tangles brushed …
… Kids buckled, breakfast
Doled out, Cheerios spilled, tears
Shed, food shared, all’s well.
Off we go, behind
The school bus. Wait, wait, tick, tick.
Off we go for real.
Red lights, traffic jams,
Shoes fall off, noses drip, songs
Requested and sung.
We laugh, whine, wail, punch,
Crunch, purell, and park. Preschool:
Minutes to spare. Breeeeeeeeaaaaaathe.
How do you handle the morning rush? What item gets left behind most often? And do you have a Cheerio graveyard on your floorboard, too?
