A Mother’s Day

Ladies, when you hear the old saying - a woman’s work is never done - do you nod your head and say, “that is so true!”  From the time you get out of bed in the morning and your feet hit the floor until you get back into bed at night, you are in top gear all day long.

This especially applies if you are a mother, so does this sound familiar ….


A Mother's Day

Ok Ok I hear you
Stop banging on the door
I’m sitting on the toilet seat
With my knickers on the floor

I hear your tummy rumbling
Your breakfast I will get
Your father’s just gone out the door
And I know your pants are wet

I’ve only got one pair of hands
The chores they never end
Be patient now my little man
Or I’ll go around the bend

If anyone had told me
How motherhood would be
I might have had a second thought
What lay in front of me

I’ll wash the clothes and iron them
The floor will get a mop
I’ll wash the dishes in the sink
But still I cannot stop

The fridge is nearly empty
More food I’ll have to buy
And take the dog down to the vet
There’s something in her eye

The day is not yet over
Our dinner I must cook
I’d rather put my feet up
And read my favourite book

So would I change the role I have
A mother and a wife
Not even for a million bucks
I love this way of life!
