Three Limericks

A mother once looked at her floor
And said, "I'm SO done with this chore - 
I scrub every night
'Till sparkling and bright;
Next day it's as gross as before!"

"Round smiley face" by Kate, in Model Magic, 2013

A mother and child sat to play
The same game for the sixth time that day.
And read the same book
(Three hours it took)
Twelve rounds, as exhausted she lay.

"Necklace for Mom but I need help with the knot" by Kate, in pasta, 2013

Of that floor, years later, ('tis said)
The child had no memory; instead
He remembers the way
She smiled as they played
And the warmth of her arms as they read.

Some repetitive tasks yield much better dividends than other repetitive tasks, y'know? 'Just sayin'.

Happy Mother's Day, fellow moms. 


  1. Amen to that! And Happy Mother's Day to you, too! LOVED your limericks... and Kate's art work. :)

  2. So true! Have a wonderful day together. xx

  3. Happy Mother's Day to you! You are a one-in-a-million Mom!

  4. Happy Mother's Day to you from a Singaporean mother (like you?) presently living in Dubai.

  5. I'm smiling and crying at the same time. Thank you for your words.

  6. Happy Mother's Day to you, too!

  7. Happy, happy Mother's Day! Thanks for a smile this morning!

  8. I hear you! Happy mother's day!

  9. I know that I am quite late
    I'm off from that May 15th date
    But I still want to say
    Have a great Mother's Day
    Next year - now you don't need to wait


Thank you for talking to me! If you have a question, I might reply to it here in the comments or in an email.
