Mommy needs a day

Mommy needs a day off.
But is there really such a thing?
Cause if mommy takes a day off,
Nobody does a thing!

If mommy takes a day off
her cell would constantly ring.
Mommy are you going to check my homework?
Honey, when are you coming?

Mommy wants to take a break
A day out on her own.
A day where she can shop or read or spa.
A day to call her own.

Mommy could take ONE day to herself
To relax, maybe have a drink
That's seems to not be much to ask.
At least so you would think.

Mommy where did you put my socks?
Honey, are these dishes clean?
Honey, the baby needs a change.
Mommy, he's being mean!

Just one day off to get some air.
Just one day out alone.
Just one day off. Is that not fair?
Just one day off....... without my cellphone!

I wish!!! The closest thing to this reality is if you accidently lock yourself in your room =).

Stu Pidasso said...!! Make yourself a little sign to hang around your neck with just one word, and make it a word that the rest of your family will know that you are on vacation. While studying coaching for rugby and soccer, the instructors taught us to do an hour and a half training session without SPEAKING. One of the most interesting concepts I ever experienced. It will help teach your family to be a little more self-sufficient. Deal with it. The poem is really good. Glad you posted it. GB!!

I know its like a chance in HECK that mom would really get a day off but just the thought makes me wanna bring out the martinis!

And you know what Stu Pidasso, IF i could go an hour and a half without speaking (to the kids because they WERE selfufficient, that would be heavenly. I don't think moms get that luxury.
