Having kids is very nice

The year in review. Thank you to Maurice Sendak for the inspiration.

** January **
In January
T was small
I had no time
to write at all
my home from home
was at the mall.

having twice
having kids is very nice.


** February **
In February
life was bleak
I tried to get out
once a week
this kid thing isn't
for the meek.

** March **
In March
two visitors
we saw
Dee Dee and Jess
walked in the door
and when they left
we cried for more.

** April **
In April
our poor Emily
had a thorn
we could not see
the doctor had to
cut it free.

** May **
In May
we had a
Mother's Day
Mike gambled most
the night away
he did not win
but he did pay.

In June
the day that E was born
we celebrated
night to morn
a juice box
from her hand
was torn.

In July
I could start to see
what happiness might mean
to me
with mommy
daddy
E
and T.

** August **
In August
we flew to Texas
just to see
what all the fuss was
we left knowing
ya'll must love us.

In September
Rosa started
would she work
was what we wondered
why'd we wait
we also pondered.

In October
days grew shorter
Halloween
was lots of bother
Tommy T
just wants his mother

** November **
In November
lots of writing
kids get TV
I get hiding
novel written
fast as lightning.

** December **
In December
we had houseguests
grandmas flocked
to this here address
and T turned one
with much finesse.
