Happy Mother’s Day!

I wrote this poem about 6 years ago. It is full of inside jokes, but I thought it would be fun to post. I hope you enjoy reading this, and I hope you all have a wonderful mother’s day!

Oh Mother…

Who's gonna make the coffee?
Who's gonna clean the floor?
Who's gonna buy the toilet paper
when we don't have any more?

Who's gonna cut the grass?
Who's gonna clean the pool?
Who's gonna look at Savannah and say,
"You're wearing that to school"?

Who's gonna tell the baby
"be careful, that knife is sharp"?
Who's gonna ask silly questions
just to aggravate Clark?

Who's gonna be the grownup
when grownup stuff needs to be done?
Who's gonna be sarcastic, clever, and mean
just for fun?

Who's gonna do everything,
everything we don't do?
And love us forever and ever?
Mother, oh mother, it's you!
