A little bit of peace.

Parenting Poetry

 

Sometimes I remember

How peaceful life can be

The joy of sitting quietly

With a simple cup of tea

This occurrence is an exception

Definitely not the rule

As peace only ever happens

When the kids are all in school

    Oh, yes. I am going to frame this and hang it up. Perfect. 🙂 (I have 3 kids, and from tomorrow they will be out of school for the next 8 weeks…)
