A Haiku for Mom

Haiku Friday

A mom of all trades.
Gestator, birther, nightly
waker, breast feeder.

A bottle scrubber,
spoon feeder, spit-up wiper,
Snot sucker -- (the bulb!)

Pee target, fever
checker (rectal!), butt wiper.
A boo boo kisser.

Broken heart mender,
Shoulder to lean on, snuggler.
Story, song master.

We give our all, n'er
asking for more than a hug.
So, go hug a mom.

Happy Mother's Day!

Am I the only one who's never taken a rectal temperature?

Happy mother's day (and is Karen serious? never taken a rectal temp? REALLY?)!

Hope you got some rest after battling out Punkin's puking last wee. :)
