In the quiet of the morning when all the children sleep
I tip-toe quietly around the house afraid to make a peep.
I pick up clothes from off the floor
I put their toys in side their doors
I put the dishes in the sink
I draw a bath for little "stink"
I take the clothes from the dryer to fold
I wash the dirty and stowe the old.
I then put water in my teapot
and turn on CNN
In a few short minutes they will wake
and the maddness starts again.
In the quiet of the morning
when all the children sleep.
I creep to my computer without making a peep.
I blog a bit, and read my mail, and check the latest tweet
