Escape the madness
This past fall, I started back to full time out of the house work for the first time in over 8 years. I’d quit face-to-face teaching to stay at home when we were having our second child. After he was born, we had two more in pretty quick succession and built our own personal army that often rises up against us. Honestly, it is madness around here on pretty much a daily basis, and we revel in the days that feel picturesque.
While those perfect days are few and far between, every day is, quite seriously, perfect. We have beautiful, healthy children and a gorgeous house. We both have jobs that are pretty amazing, and we’re in love. What else could we need?
Well, maybe a few moments of silence would help.
Escape the Madness
No sleeping in on Saturday.
Can’t wake up Monday through Friday.
Can I have a snack?
Rewash with vinegar
Dried ketchup and oatmeal
Is there any food?
Cat litter on the floor
Dog hair on my pants
We’re out of chips!
Dirt, sand, mud, trash
Screams, tears, pouts, tantrums
“In a few short years, you’ll hate the silence.”
“Enjoy it while you can.”
“It goes by in the blink of an eye.”
“The days are long but the years are short.”
This month’s poetry linkup theme is Escape. I clearly took liberty with the topic. Check out what my fellow poetic bloggy friends created:
“Can’t Just Go” from Karen at Baking in a Tornado
“The Great Escape” from Dawn of Spatulas on Parade
“Escaped” from Diane of On the Border
