Busy Lives

Kids today have hectic lives With weekends super busy. It’s certainly enough to get A nana in a tizzy! From chess to soccer to a fair For autumn, at the school, The hours are filled with much more Than I’m used to, as a rule. A birthday party follows At a studio for art; Each child will paint a canvas. (How Picasso got his start?) Then pizza and a birthday cake (I’m sure with lots of frosting). The kids seem happy, but to me, This day is just exhausting! There’s one more thing to do - A P.J. party, 6 - 9. The first bed occupied tonight, though, Surely will be mine!

Enjoyed, as it makes me happy to be an old man who just sits in his chair enjoying a cold beer whilst Nana does everything! Aloha!

This is a fun, and highly appropriate poem, "Nana." Glad you had a good day with the kids. Bet you slept like a log!
