Mummy

Hey mum, could we have roast chicken for dinner? You know your roast potatoes really are a winner. Mum, remember you promised to help with my homework later? I have to hand it in tomorrow, your help would not be greater. Hi mum, my doctors appointment today is around ten. Your picking me up, just wanted to know when. Hello mum, is it ok for you to look after the kids around noon? I have to get my hair done, will drop them over soon. Yes mum. I texted you but you didn't reply. Anyway did you get all those things I asked you to buy? Well mum, the thing is, we've been really busy this week. Could you have the kids overnight now? We really need some sleep. Hi mum, how are you today? My car wont go! Can you drive me to work? I really need your help you know. Mum, when you go to the post office can you grab a parcel for me? I'd go there myself but I don't like to wait in line you see. Mums are really angels of God, sent from up above. To look after children and fill there lives with love. Happy Mothers Day to all the mums out there. You may sometimes feel unnoticed but dads are well aware.

This poem reminded me of how much we rely on our mums even though we are grown and supposedly independent. Thanks Mom for all you did for me!

Well crafted poem. I must admit that I am torn between telling you that I am disturbed by the content but at the same time I want to put in an order for a mummy just like this.

Exactly Dineen. My girls would be completely lost without their mother

Super cool tribute to mums everywhere. This really is the way it often goes too and sometimes we do feel unappreciated. Thanks so much for noticing my friend. Loved it. A seven from me. God Bless, JB
