“Grateful”

your morning rumbles

fights over who woke up first

disappointed that mom is always the winner

exciting chaos of a new day awaits

and you run off to find an adventure

the sunkissed lazy afternoons

blanketed in stories and pretend play

me holding you in my arms fighting old demons inside

the cozy evenings pass by fast

i wait in our fort of pillows and baby blankets

time for you to share stories and complaints

what made you smile and teary eyed today

zombies, dance party, karaoke breaks to climbing walls

you both finally bounce away to the bunks

awaiting just one more story time

the soporific effect of my voice still works on your tired minds.

you make me a proud mommy most of the day

but it is your randomness that is my loudest pride.
