Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day Haiku!
teeth marks on shoulder
"I bite you instead of kiss!"
painful toddler love

don't pull out your hair
no matter what the kids do
will just grow back gray

sleep in the bath tub
copy of Dwell is destroyed
me time so worth it

the penis custom
off limits in shopping cart
important lesson

tiny baby socks
become bigger stinky ones
still love the feet, though

"I love you, Mommy."
melts my heart every time
even cleaning poop

  1. Your haiku covers all the satisfactions amid the chaos of parenthood. Thanks!

  2. I guess it would be pedantic to point out that this is actually a series of haiku, each of which is missing its "kigo."

    I know, I know, I just couldn't help myself.

  3. Very nice Shadowfax. I hope Mrs. Shadowfax has a much deserved wonderful Mother's Day.
