Homework from OMSH – write a Haiku.
Parenting is tough
Parent teacher interviews
Tell me some good news
One works so darn hard
Two is not as diligent
Nature of the beast
Just do your best work
You really need to bother
Listen to Mother
I forgot what a Haiku was!
A poet I am not! I think you’re supposed to write about nature. Hmmm, I hope my ‘wild’ children count.
We had parent-teacher interviews this evening. I’m not sure when it happened, but I feel like a real mom! For years I felt like I was ‘faking’ it! Somewhere, somehow … adulthood snuck up and bit me on the ASS when I wasn’t looking (of course I wasn’t looking … who’d let anything bite their ass if they were looking? Ahh, don’t answer that!).

I think the Haikus are great and I do believe “wild” children count as nature.

Love it great job
Wow- I havent written one since grade school. Great job on the poetry
The few times I have ever tried to write poetry I quickly realized I am not a poet and that poets are VERY talented people–like you. Great Haiku!
