Happy Mother’s Day

Excuse This House

~Author Unknown

Some houses try to hide the fact
that children shelter there.
Ours boasts of it quite openly;
the signs are everywhere.
For smears are on the windows,
little smudges on the doors–
I should apologize, I guess,
for the toys strewn on the floor.
But I sat down with the children
and we played and laughed and read.
And if the doorbell doesn’t shine
their eyes will shine instead.
For when at times I’m forced to choose
the one job or the other,
I want to be a housewife,
but first I’ll be a mother.

About Kerri

Ahh…see that smile on my face? That’s a genuine smile. I love my family. I love the 4th of July. I love the beach. I love ice-cream. And the day this picture was taken, I was getting the combination of it all. Ahhh…that’s a real smile!
