For Parental Units Everywhere..:)


One of these days

One of these days you'll explode and shout to all the kids,
"Why don't you just grow up and act your age!"

And they will.....

Or "You guys get outside and find something to do...
without hurting each other...
AND DON'T SLAM THE DOOR!"

And they don't...

You'll straighten their bedroom until it's all neat and tidy,
toys displayed on the shelf... all neat and tidy....
Animals in their cages...
you'll yell...
"NOW I WANT IT TO STAY THIS WAY!"

And it will....

You will prepare a perfect dinner with a salad that hasn't
had all of the olives picked out and a cake with
no finger tracings in the icing and you'll say...
"NOW THIS IS A MEAL FOR COMPANY!"

And you will eat it alone....

You'll yell...
"I want complete privacy on the phone! No screaming...
"DO YOU HEAR ME!"

And no one will answer....

No more plastic tablecloths stained
No more Dandelion bouquets,
No more iron on patches,
No more wet, knotted shoelaces,
muddy boots, or rubber bands for ponytails,

Imagine....a lipstick with a point!
No baby-sitters for New Year's Eve!
Washing clothes only once a week!
No PTA meetings or silly school plays
where your child is a tree,
or a little Dutch girl named Mena.
No car pools, blaring stereos or
forgotten lunch money.

No more Christmas presents made
of Library paste and toothpicks,
No wet oatmeal kisses,
No more tooth Fairy,
No more giggles in the dark,
scrapped knees to kiss
Or sticky fingers to clean.

Only a voice asking
"Why don't you grow up?"

And the silence echoes

"I did"
