Great Poem

I know I feel like this a lot. Since I am home all afternoon I feel like nothing gets done, but I am busy from the second I get home until bedtime. Here's the poem.

Stay at Home Moms, What Did You Do Today?
Today I left some dishes dirty, The bed got made around 3:30. The diapers soaked a little longer, The odor grew a little stronger. The crumbs I spilled the day before, Are staring at me from the floor. The fingerprints there on the wall, Will likely be there still next fall. The dirty streaks on those window panes, Will still be there next time it rains. Shame on you, you sit and say, Just what did you do today?I nursed a baby till he slept, I held a toddler while he wept, I played a game of hide and seek, I squeezed a toy so it would squeak. I pulled a wagon, sang a song, Taught a child right from wrong. What did I do this whole day through? Not much that shows, I guess it’s true. Unless you think that what I’ve done, Might be important to someone, With bright brown eyes and soft blond hair, If that is true … I’ve done my share.

  1. That is a very nice poem. I appreciate everything you do honey. You really are shaping the life of a little person which has to be one of the best things in the world.

  2. Oh My Goodness!!! That poem is soooo very true! I've been a SAHM for 10 years and after leaving the corporate world I spent so many days feeling like I had accomplished nothing~ It's good to keep in mind that dishes can wait....the kids need us NOW!
