She’s a poet and didn’t know it…

I see many bloggers share their poems. While I don’t consider myself a poet, I am proud of my acrostic poem, “SURVIVAL.” This highlights the challenges of keeping up with young children and the importance of quiet time in the morning…and for those who will chastise me about my choice of morning beverage, I can proudly say in the last few weeks, I have finally kicked the Diet Coke habit!


Setting the alarm for an hour before the kids wake up,
Understanding that the dog will start barking if I don’t let her out,
Ready myself,
View slumbering babes in peaceful dreams,
Inspire myself to make smiley faces on kid’s toast,
Value my last five minutes alone with my Diet Coke,
Awakened children are making noises,
Livelihood is the bliss of motherhood!
