a.k.a. Healthy Habit Lady
scattered crayons, everywhere.
Fancy artwork – on the wall –
drawn by midgets – three feet tall.
Tell me why – and tell me how –
that was mine – I want it NOW!
Must I share? Do I gotta?
At my party – I want a piñata !
Fix my bike. Buy me gum.
If you have it, I want some.
Dirty faces, grass-stained knees,
learning words – like pretty please.
Endless hugs & goofy wet kisses,
learning respect with “Mr.” & “Mrs.”
Scraped-up hands, from falling down.
Tender tugs – – on my night gown.
Need more paper – for Santa’s letter?
I wasn’t so bad – but I’ve been better.
Watching a movie – again and again –
Mommy, please – put the tape back in.
Messy fingers – hair gone wild …
all in the life – of a precious child !!
