Mum's Just Can't Have A Lie In!!!!

I am sleeping
Though quietly
Without them knowing
I am awake
So much need for resting
As Mother's need to do
A lie in
Is an alien word
In the vocabulary of a Mum
And here yet allowed
To all the sleep I can grasp
The laughter of you both comes through
I can smell the toast being made
And wonder
Should I get up and remind you
We have run out of jam
To try the peanut butter
But know I should leave you be
But minutes later
I grab my dressing gown
To see you both laughing
As I say
There's homemade bramble jam
Forget the lie in, is there some for me!!!!

    "A lie in Is an alien word" is not only extremely clever, Jo, but also probably very true for mothers who just need a few more moments of quiet time in the morning before going on duty to mind the little ones. I love the uplifting quality in this write! Wonderful poem! Love, Carolyn
