Fist I wanted to share this I found at another blog that i love to read, It had me in tears.
A Poem for the busy Mother
SONG FOR A FIFTH CHILD
Mother, O mother, come shake out your cloth!
Empty the dustpan, poison the moth,
Hang out the washing and butter the bread,
Sew on a button and make up the bed
.........Where is the mother whose house is so shocking?
.........She's up in the nursery, blissfully rocking!
Oh, I've grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue
..........(Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo).
Dishes are waiting and bills are past due
..........(Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo).
The shopping's not done and there's nothing for stew
And out in the yard there's a hullabaloo
But I'm playing Kanga and this is my Roo.
Look! Aren't her eyes the most wonderful hue?
..........Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo.)
Oh, cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow,
But children grow up, as I've learned to my sorrow.
So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep.
I'm rocking my baby. Babies don't keep.
~~~~Ruth Hulburt Hamilton
That really hit home for me cause I just feel life is passing by so quickly and I am missing so much, the kids are growing up so fast. WE are just so busy these days. I long for a simplier time. I hope that happens soon or I may bust lol. Things are going okay here, Our baby boy has his first two that has finally made it's way through . He will be going to see the allergist soon to see if he has asthma., He is still spitting/throwing up terribly! All the other kiddos are doing good. Our youngest daughter was sick and still has a cough but is better. Our twin sons are just boys, they have been working with daddy during the day at his own business so they love that. He bought them some boots and is paying them so they are really happy about that. Our two girls went to cheerleading camp this past saturday and loved it, they will be cheering with the cheerleaders at one of the games in august. So that is pretty cool. WE are slowly starting back doing some school. I just sometimes wonder if they are learning all they need to be learning. Well I am tired and I still have the babies laundry to do so I am off. Talk to you all later
