Family TimeSunday, February 08, 2009
Playdates, and auditions, too!
Facebook, bills, housekeeping,
Before you know it – its time to cook again!
Dinner time is a must;
Time to eat and discuss;
Hopefully nothing stressful;
Hopefully just about anything.
A walk with your husband,
Catch-up conversations with your college daughter,
Quick “how are you’s” with your 17-year old;
Breakfast dates with your 13-year old;
“Connect Four” with your 7 year-old
Seems like the day is too short
And yet you’re body’s screaming
“Time for bed and get some zzzzzzs”.
Hello’s and good-nites” – a must in our house.
“Mom, I’m home”, A quick text message,
A short post-it note on my wall,
I’ll take any – just for me to know where my babies are.
Everyone grows fast
Time slips by quicker than you know;
Spontaneous family time
Is good enough to put into my “family memory bank”!
