This post is part of Ruth Ayres Celebrate Link up. Thanks, Ruth for this great opportunity to celebrate!
You are having one of those days Those Fridays Rammy kids you don't blame them Such great kids you make them popcorn, read aloud and tell them you'll try your best to be patient ask them to try their best not to try your patience You have lunch duty then forget to make calls get caught in too many conversations You have bus duty bus duty is it's own poem one day You stay after school to grade you wonder how many times you didn't put your name on papers when you were 11 You text your husband at 5:00 "I'm bringing the rest of my work home." At home you straighten up and do dishes and maybe have a little tantrum about the mess and the stress and are you getting a cold, and why is everyone hungry right when you get home does the cat need food right now too and how are you going to do all the laundry and pack all of the moving boxes and do all that work you brought home? Then your son makes dinner for himself, his brother, his sister You feel guilty and tell him as much What kind of parent doesn't have dinner figured out? Grow up! "Mommy, you make wonderful dinners every night! This is your break." You know this is something to celebrate this sweetness So you give up you put your pajamas on chill out You should have given up 2 hours ago!

Cereal for dinner at my house is always a possibility! Sounds like your children gave you a much deserved break!
What sweet children you have and I am sure that they are right that you take excellent care of them because “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”.
We have all had those days when we just don’t have it all together. Love that your son figured out supper and a way to make mom smile. Have a restful weekend!
What a thoughtful son to take care of dinner! Glad you got some time in your jammies! We all need that!
I love the way you took your stressful day and turned it into a poem. I could relate to a lot of that poem.
It is the best celebration, knowing that you have those thoughtful kids. Enjoy the weekend!
