It is apparent that a parent has much to learn and grow
Tots become tweens and know that they always know!
Sneeches turn to screeches and oncelers become one-ups
We balance more than a fish bowl, an umbrella, and a few cups.
One no, two nos, then maybe a yes
A perfectly patient parent is always under press.
Mood swings, mood rings, and moody snooty tweens,
Once I found a snoot-a-lot among my daughter’s things.
Oh the places we go and the new things we juggle,
Here is why we struggle;
Piled high atop the drama ,
way above the rest
are classes, sasses, and puppy love by the masses;
We really are just doing our best!
So if you wonder why we seek
Refuge from a crazy week
Just look inside our house and take a peek
On second thought, just close the door
Back away a little more
Turn and run (left foot, left foot, left foot, right)
I wish to spare you such a fright!
