2 FOR 1.

"TODAY I FEEL LIKE SCREAMING AT YOU!"

I JUST CAN’T TAKE YOU ANYMORE!
YOU’RE TAKING OVER MY LIFE-
PLEASE STOP COMING AROUND HERE,
ALL YOU CREATE IS STRIFE!!!

YOU UPSET ME ON A DAILY BASIS,
TAKING UP SO MUCH OF MY TIME,
AND I CAN’T SEEM TO HANDLE YOU,
YOU ALWAYS MAKE ME RUN BEHIND!

PLEASE STOP TAKING OVER ME,
I SEE YOU EVERYWHERE I LOOK!!
I CAN NEVER REST, NEVER NAP,
OR HEAVEN FORBID I READ A BOOK!

I CAN’T SEEM TO GET A HANDLE ON YOU-
YOU’RE ALWAYS FILTHY, NEVER CLEAN…
AND YOU’RE NEVER NICE TO ME,
YOU ALWAYS SEEM SO MEAN.

SO AS I CONTINUE TO WASH YOU ALL,
AND DRY YOU, FOLD YOU, HANG YOU, TOO
PLEASE REMEMBER I DESPISE YOU!!
TODAY I FEEL LIKE SCREAMING AT YOU!!!

"DON'T BLINK"

THE JOY THAT OVERWHELMS YOU IS
AT MOMENTS HARD TO DESCRIBE.
YOU’D BE RICH IF YOU HAD A PENNY FOR
EACH TIME THAT YOU CRIED.

EACH AND EVERY DAY YOU SEE
IS FILLED WITH SUCH SUNLIGHT.
AND EVERY MOMENT FILLED WITH LOVE
AS YOU TUCK HIM IN AT NIGHT.

THOSE BIG BROWN EYES WILL MELT YOU
THAT LIL’ SMILE WILL TOUCH YOUR HEART
YOU’LL WONDER HOW TIME HAS MOVED SO
QUICKLY TO NOW FROM THE START.

THOSE LITTLE LAUGHS WILL TAKE YOU
TO PLACES YOU’VE NEVER BEEN TO.
AND FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE,
YOU’LL HOPE HE STAYS WITH YOU.

BUT JUST AS THE SEASONS BRING CHANGE,
SO THAT LIL’ ONE WILL CHANGE EACH DAY…
CHERISH THE TOYS, THE SCRAPED KNEES, THE CRIES,
YOU KNOW YOU WOULDN’T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY.

HOLD ONTO EACH MOMENT WITH LOVE,
LIVE IN THE DAYS GOD GIVES YOU.
ENJOY TIME WITH THIS LITTLE ONE AND TRUST ME-
DON’T BLINK, BECAUSE LIFE WILL HAPPEN TO YOU.

THE DISHES CAN WAIT, SO CAN MOPPING,
IF THE LAUNDRY PILES UP-IT’S OKAY!
JUST GIVE THAT LIL’ ONE KISSES AND HUGS,
AND HOLD ONTO HIM WHILE YOU HAVE TODAY!!
