sleep deprivation
causes really bad haiku
words not come out good


their first baseball game
happy crowds, hot dogs, home runs
a smashing success

three year old, absorbed
forgets to use the bathroom
giant, stinky mess

pouring lemonade
on your brother’s head because
he did not say no

her hands on her hips
adorned with pink tiara
the princess turns three

she whispers in the darkness
reciting the steps

red tutu, white tights
so much confidence and joy
tears obscure my view

ballet recital
glorious culmination
of one year’s study

toddler passport pic
non-smiling hilarity
kegel reminder

five year old’s meltdown
obliterates storytime
parenting is tough
