I am not a home-maker

I am not a home-maker,
never will be.
If I was bad at maths or snorkelling 
you would not judge me,
if I couldn’t do sodokus,
I would simply avoid them -
and my failure in that area
would not be my poison.
If I couldn’t skate or rhumba
I would not feel scuppered 
by half-imagined eye rolls
and the whisperings of clutter.
I am the mucky-pup mother
of grubby crumpled children...
Lady shiny two-shoes -
please leave the building.

LOVE and FAVE this! Honestly... anyone who can criticize a writer like you- should never be taken seriously!! Don't feel bad, I'm sure there are some people out there eye-rolling me. And I don't even have children... so somehow cleaning house is supposed to CONSUME my every breath?! (Rolling my own eyes now- it's an epidemic!! hahaahaaa) ;D

Eyes not rolling, rather twinkling at your wit and creative rhyming, Nina.

You are a loving mum who has challenges to deal with - the house can be untidy its the kids that count and they won't mind a bit of a mess after all they probably created it in the first place!:-) hugs jan xx

Fair enough: You, Nina, are not a homemaker. And I, Gershon, am no judge of homemaking! ~ gw
