It feels like,
It’s not just getting
Time
To yourself .
It’s having time,
With the right
Frame of mind.

Which is where I fall down.

Starting
Ending
Packing up lives
Goodbyes

Tearing
Embracing
Promises to keep
Sleep

TWENTY REASONS FOR BEING

Another poem

swissmiss - A Poem for Someone Who is Juggling Her Life

each haircut
each set of outgrown clothes
each start of a new school year

moves us closer to that thing we dread
our kids growing up
our kids leaving

this is not to depress you
it’s to help you enjoy now
while it’s here
while they are

the past is past
put our mistakes behind us
stop being distracted or too busy
rededicate ourselves — to parenting
our most important job

let us begin afresh, afresh, afresh
for
today is the very last time
they will be this age
again

Paraphrased from Daily Dad

Day 10 is sponsored by Ted Lasso and the song Risk It All by Ella Henderson.

Day 9 Yumo was looking over the back of the sofa, like a meerkat. Tigger and his blanket held tightly. Daddy? Yes Yumo? He makes a kissing noise with his mouth. Good morning Yumo
