Ooh Date Night.

Date night

Ooh I’m going out tonight, it’s date night with my man

 kids are having a sleep over, staying with their Gran

 Me and hubby a night of peace, we’ve planned to dress up fine

 Going to a restaurant with lots and lots of wine

 I’ve just had a rare long shower, my favourite dress is out

Just need to put my make up on and give dear hubs a shout

 Feel so relaxed and comfy I lay thinking on my bed

Its nice to have some quiet time, no shouts of MUM in my head

 But suddenly I recognise, that beep beep, beep,beep, beep

 Oh no! it’s the morning alarm, I fell fast asleep.

    Such a great poem, can so relate as a 45 yr old mum with a 7 year old son. Especially the ‘mum mum in my head’ Brilliant!

      Thanks, I cant decide if we’re being kept young or being worn out.Haha

        I know what you mean, I frequently comment I should have had my son when I was younger! just don’t have the energy these days!

        • August 31, 2013 / 20:17

          Not enough energy that’s true but would we have had the patience. I don’t think I would have.
