Has this ever happened to you?
“Mommy I need some cupcakes for school.”
“Ok sure honey… when do you need them?”
“In da morning.”
“Why didn’t you tell me earlier?”
“I didn’t needs dem then”
We get home from school.
I heat the leftover mac & cheese.
And prepare another gourmet meal.
“Tomorrow is crazy hat day at school.”
Is this necessary for her overall educational development?
We have crazy hat day,
Dr. Seuss birthday celebration day,
Toy that starts with G day…
“okay, can you wear that baseball cap?”
“it has to be crazy… not like dat”
do not have crazy hats.
What in the heck am I to do?
Landon rounding the corner.
“I likes dis one.”
It my signature black cap that reads…
What would I wear Monday through Friday?
“No honey… you can’t have that.”
What will I wear?
It has to be crazy”

“Just go to bed…
I’ll figure it out”
Right after world peace…
And the ridiculous way Donald Trump wears his hair.
I dig through my closet,
The craft box,
The toy chest.
I have a pile of junk…
And an old witch hat.
I commence to creating.
The finished product:
Complete with a fake fruit from the kids’ kitchen,
Wrinkly silver bows,
A cat toy,
And a rogue ping pong ball.
I am just about done with my masterpiece when?
The glue gun went awry…
Presenting a layer of glue….
Across my fingers.
… That hurt.
Seriously …after two hours,
I still couldn’t feel my fingers.
That is likely because the top three layers of skin…
Are now gone.
There is a large glue glob…
On my Pottery Barn table.
Has left a 2 ¼ inch mark where the black paint
And tomorrow friends?
Is Mommy is pissed day.
