School in the morning, baking at lunchtime,
Twitter and Blogging as the night falls.
There is plunging and cleaning, and of course refereeing;
Homeschooling Mama, she does it all.
I missed my breakfast and I am so hungry;
Plexus and protein will have to carry me through.
There’s a bun in the oven and company’s comin’,
Loud interruptions from every room!
Sweats and bandanas, socks and pajamas –
That’s how we greet you at our front door.
Every student is busy and the dog’s in a tizzy.
Oh, what a party we signed up for!
When is it summer? Where is your brother?
I need my mother! Will I survive?
Solitude calls me, but there’s no escaping.*
Silence is golden, this I now know.*
But even though no one pays me, I’ll care for my babies,
And I’ll take the crazy if You won’t let go.
