Boy! I love being a Mother!

I wrote this as a young mother.  I have tried in the years since to think up new verses, but it was complete as is, and never wanted to be changed.   So here you go, just for fun.

My baby just found a permanent pen
Boy-I love being a Mother!
The boy’s wrestling has turned to Band-Aids again
Boy- I love being a Mother.
I finally got breakfast at quarter past nine
and sat down a moment to jot down this rhyme
when the screaming started in record time
Boy! I really love being a Mother!

And yet……

There’s love shining in my little girl’s eyes
Yes- I love being a Mother
I hear my ten year old suddenly sound wise
Yes- I love being a Mother
Boys make themselves strong to be my hero
I love to watch their minds learn and grow
So- tho’ the floor’s now awash with Cheerios
Yes!  I do love being a Mother!
