Instead of asking 
Me to move my bike, you hid
It in the locked shed
When you saw me looking for 
It, you didn’t say a word

It’s been 10 years now
But you still pull the same stunts
With books, my laptop,
Turning off my internet – 
What kind of parent does this?


Received 3rd place in "Bag of Tricks" contest

    Yes, I remember this one. It was quite unique and showed something about your childhood. I think we can learn a few things about how NOT to be from certain things our parents did. And now MY kids have probably learned a LOT on how not to be.haha. Congrats on the winners' circle, Susan. I'm very happy to have met you on this website!

    [sigh] just perhaps a lonely person who can't stand anything or one taking your attention from them? BIG HUGS! [you never know?] Light & Love
