Mommy the Grouch

with 4 comments

Some days I wake up with a snarl.

You will know it before my feet hit the floor.

You’d better get out of the way.

It’s mommy the grouch day.

Each child gets up with a yawn and a whine.

And I start to shout.

You had better look out!

It’s mommy the grouch day.

A coffee should help. But it doesn’t.

Yet pour another on top.

Now I’m jittery and the anger won’t stop.

It’s mommy the grouch day.

No, I don’t want you to sing opera.

I don’t want you to play frisbee in the hall.

I just want to curl up in a tiny ball.

Just please go away.

Just do what I say.

Oh fine, I don’t care. Have it your way.

Because it’s a mommy the grouch kind of day.

    Nicely done.

    • Thanks very much! Some days are just more grouchy than others. I hope your wife doesn’t have too many.
