My favorite part of the weekday
Around 9:00 p.m.
Both girls are in bed,
I can see them,
Not asking for anything
So I sit…
With my nirvana..
A hefty glass of red wine.
Normally I pretty much collapse,
at this point.
But tonight I can’t stop giggling
As I was putting Landon in her bunk bed
Tennyson beneath us …
With the slow and steady hum of near sleep
Landon shares a story.
Peyton’s Mommy jis had a baby…
It was in her tummy
And da doctor took it out with a big knife.
Because it hurts to have a knife in your tummy.”
I guess it does.
Where does she get this stuff?
when you grow up would you like to be a Mommy?”
Wrinkling the forehead…
“I don’t know Mommy…
I be so scaried of da hospital…
And then you have dese kids…
And they jis run around and don’t even listen to you.”
And from below…
Tennyson not yet fully asleep must contribute:
she right Mommy…
we not listen.”
to the second power.
