This is especially for A Old Lady Who Lived in a Shoe, who visited and lest a message recently. It's a reminder that there are ups and downs to everything in our lives! Boy, are there ever!!
A little ballerina,
Adorable Aleksis is 2nd from left.
A little boy with trucks,
They’re drawing on the chalk board
Or chasing after ducks.
The house is strewn with toys,
Barbie dolls & blocks,
And little Lego pieces,
And children’s grungy socks.
But wait -- I’m only dreaming
My kids have grown and gone,
No socks or blocks or tinker toys
No Legos to walk on.
The trucks and Lincoln Logs I see
Are in my children’s homes.
The clutter is my grandkids’ mess,
Those darling little gnomes.
How differently I see it now,
My “pick up” days are past.
I buy the toys for them to keep......
And I am free......... at last!
Do I have beautiful grandchildren or what?!?!?
