Silly Mom Bras are for Boys - Danielle Wise Baxter's Blog

About Danielle Wise Baxter
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoMy name is Danielle Wise Baxter, (RED) I was born 4-6-1971, in Coushatta, La. I am a Christian, the oldest of 4 with 4 children of my own. Married since I was 17 to the same man. I am a narrative writer, and see things from a different light than most. My work is original to who I am. You will find I am old fashioned. Half Cherokee well 42.92 %. I have no idea why that number. lol My DNA allows for prose form in Native American fashion (turtle and the hare). So I am never short for imagery. Please keep in mind I write children's books, so my work will be geared in that direction (mostly). Calico Fox Aka Foxy is a new series in my children's books. I also have a eidetic memory. I am here to relax or rant. Just to get things off my mind. I may not use form or it be a poem, just me rambling but that's what "I" paid for. If it looks long and you don't like long, don't read . If you start reading and do not like it just stop and move on. I do not want your rewrite, suggestions for my real poetry are awesome. Real poets and writers will know what is real, if not pass it up. No need to comment poorly.

Silly Mom Bras are for Boys

Blog Posted:5/13/2012 12:11:00 PM
On this poems/love'>lovely day in the US for mothers, I decided to share the joys of boys. I have 4 children 23(b), 20 (g) , 17 (b), 15 (b). The two oldest have their own homes/farms but the two younger boys are still here. Friday I had to go to town, I have a 70+ gallon fish tank full of tropical fish. The boys wanted to get me a few odd things for it. So off to a town called Ruston to Pick of the Liter pet store. First Walmart which they so oddly eagerly wanted to go to.

Once in the store they vanished. No big deal I am mom, no one stays with me in a store. Boxing gloves was their goal. OH BOY! I really do not want them into this, but they have asked for lessons and equipment. So we get ready to leave and I hear them laughing. Never a good sign with boys.

So I ask what is so funny. The youngest says, em they do not have boxing gloves but we have figured out how to make some. So knowing not to ask but doing it anyway, I ask. The oldest said your genie bras. We can make gloves out of them. OH that sounds like a plan to me. Good thing I have a drawer full. So Happy Mother's Day to all. Enjoy those lovely moments of having sons and the joys that goes with daughters even though that is entirely different. Protect your bras from Little boxer wanna be-s Big hugs from me to you
Now to go feed the exciting fish they got me. He is called a dragon and looks like a dragon/snake so my tank will be way cool. Sharks, eels, and my favorite Oscar. I refuse to put my hand in the tank with the new dragon. He is so scary the pet store girl could not catch him. liveaquaria .com /product/prod_display.cfm?c=954+2526&pcatid=2526

Actually, if you tie the old elastic ones to a stick, you can have a double barrel sling shot.
