The life of mum

I've been up since the crack of dawn,
Not even enough time to stifle a yawn!

Making the breakfast,
And washing the dishes.
Changing a nappy,
And feeding the fishes.

Switch on Cbeebies,
Just for a while,
Take a sip coffee, Oh god look at that washing pile!

Sort through the colours,
And remove all the stains,
You can bet tomorrow I'll be doing this all over again!

Jump in the shower,
Ouch too hot!
I swear that there's something I've forgot.

Tidy up the toys for the tenth time,
Is this really the life that's all mine?

It's bath time now,
Splashing floods the floor,
Oh sweet child who I do adore!

Story time let's settle down,
Let's jump in the story with Winnie the Pooh,
Lots of honey and buzzing bees,
Ouch I'm getting cramp in my knees!

Days are hard,
Things need to be done,
But you hear their gentle breathing,
And see their sleepy smiles,
That's the life of mum,
And it's all worth while.
