Natasha, could you please clean your room
Its been messy for a while
But mom, I dont need to
I like my room messy right now!
Tidiness is over rated
I can still find all the things I want
My clothes may be on the floor
But I can still find them and put them on
Mommy, please dont talk to me
I am thinking
Not, I dont want to tell you what Im thinking about
I need to be left alone to day dream
Lets talk another time
How was school today, Natasha?
I didnt see any hippos in the hall
What was your favorite class today?
Gym, then recess and then lunch!
What a rough morning it is
Nicki, you need to do your homework at night
Now, you are asking me to help you
But I have other things on my mind
Mommy, you cant complain
For this, you yourself signed up
No one made you have kids
Dont ask for sympathy, right now
Natasha, dear, when youre older
And have a child
Ill remind you for what you signed up!
Mommy, can you make me lunch
And make me a good sandwich this time
Im tired of bagel and cheese and ham
Could you find something else this time?
My friends bring these amazing things for lunch
And I get the same thing all the time
Could I please have some variety
Why dont you make your own lunch!?
And so it goes
Each day something new
Children will always surprise you!
But Im happy I signed up for it
Because in the end, its all worth it!
