When I'm a Little Old Lady
Then I'll live with my children and bring them great joy
To repay all I've had from each girl and boy.
I shall draw on the walls and scuff up the floor
Run in and out without closing the door.
I'll hide frogs in the pantry, Socks under my bed.
Whenever they scold me, I'll just hang my head.
I'll run and I'll romp, always fritter away
The time to be spent doing chores every day.
I'll pester my children when they're on the phone.
As long as they're busy, I won't leave them alone.
Hide candy in closets, rocks in a drawer
And never pick up my clothes from the floor.
Dash off to the movies and not wash a dish.
I'll plead for allowance whenever I wish.
I'll stuff up the plumbing and deluge the floor
As soon as they've mopped it, I'll flood it some more.
When they correct me, I'll lie down and cry
Kicking and screaming, not a tear in my eye.
I'll take all their pencils and flashlights, and then
When they buy new ones--I'll take them again.
I'll spill glasses of milk to complete every meal
Eat my banana and just drop the peel.
Put toys on the table, spill jam on the floor
I'll break lots of dishes as though I was four.
What fun I shall have.
What joy it will be
To live with my children like--
THEY LIVED WITH ME!!!!
Okay - gotta say I loved that - thanks Jeannie (my cousin).
You know if you're any like me - I love to think about doing things like that - while I never really would - I love dreaming about it!!! Makes me happy. Do you ever do things like that?
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Okay this helps me get through hump day today. I' really tired. I've been burning the candles at both ends - getting up at 6 and staying up to midnight! lol I'm going to go to bed early tonight.
I'm also meeting Linda a fellow blogger for lunch today and that always helps things too!
