Part II "Old Lady"

This is the rest of the fun poem "When I'm and Old Lady". When I am an old lady and live with my kids. When they cook dinner and call me to meals, I will not eat my green beans or salads congealed. I will gag on my okra, spill milk on the table, And when they get angry, I'll run fast as I'm able! When I am an old lady and live with my kids. I will sit close to the TV, through the channels I'll click. I'll cross both my eyes just to see if they stick, I will take off my socks and then throw one away, And play in the mud till the end of the day. When I am an old lady and live with my kids. And later in bed, I will lay back and sigh, And thank God in prayer and then close my eyes. My kids will look down with a smile slowly creeping, And say with a groan, "She's so sweet when she's sleeping." When I am an old lady and live with my kids. As my kids get older, I treasure the times they did the above things and I am now able to laugh about the events as fond memories. The circle of life is indeed a BLESSING!

Such a fun poem! I'm not sure I'd be so sweet when I slept. I might jump on the bed, or need a drink of water or have to go potty or something!

Oh, this one is even better than the first! :D Love it!

And thank you for the Dog Whisperer advice on my post, Nancy. I wish I got that channel with his show...but did look him up on the internet.
I have good friends that are willing to take her (with bigger kids) but am giving myself a good week to decide.

Just stopped by to say hi and see what is going on. Cute poem. I have 4 grown children, and both of my girls are always doing something nice for me and when I say anything they just remind me it is their turn....
