I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March. You should do it too! Thank you, Two Writing Teachers! Readers, check out their site, and start slicing!
Daily, in March I write make coffee do dishes do some laundry ask the kids to please help Please, clean their rooms I go to bed too late I shun sugar I sneak some sugar I make more coffee I try to drink a lot of water E checks the countdown to Easter and then countdown to summer L asks to go look at the cats and dogs at the shelter soon H sits and slices The kids ask for us to "please pay just $2.00 for a new game" We ask the kids to "please take the dog for a walk" We work our to do list grows our kids grow Thankfully we also laugh Daily, in March

So much to do – always. Fitting in those slices is tough. But they make us become more fully who we are meant to be. Great post of daily lives. Either distractions or inspirations!
I beautiful. poetic representation of the life of your family and that never ending list along with laughter.
I’d never thought about all the other things that happen in March. My thinking is so dominated by slicing! Have I written, what am I going to write about, when do I have time to write, etc. I really love this poem. Powerful use of repeating first and last lines and all the twists and turns in between.
A beautiful, poetic representation of the life of your family and that never ending list along with laughter.
Daily in life is a wonderful format for a poetry slice, Ona.
There is something so comforting in reading your slice. The day to day conversations and events captured so beautifully. I particularly smiled at the children begging for $2 and the parents begging to have the dog walked.
This is so true. Especially yesterday when commenting consumed my life. I like the way you put the monthly madness into a poem and seek help from the kids.
I drink more coffee I try to drink a lot of water. Yes! Though I’m sitting here with coffee ready to work on report cards.
I love feeling like I entered into your family’s daily life in the month of March. Your ending, “We work
our to do list grows
our kids grow”
shows that all the while, life is moving forward, and we are growing in many directions!
A great poem! I feel like coffee and sugar rule my life right now!
I love the line shuns sugar and sneaks sugar. And the beginning and ending.
I love how you turned your daily life in March into a poem format!
I love this representation of your family and all of the things that are happening in March.
