Just for Fun--By Lisa DeVinney--United States

Just for Fun

Football pads and baseball bats,
Caps and muddy cleats,
Dirty dishes, dirty socks,
Dirty towels and sheets;

Backpacks here and blankets there.
Where’s my favorite shirt?
Got a game to get to and
No way…that’s not my dirt!

Oh how’s a girl to keep up;
What on earth am I to do?
Cuz all that’s just the husband…
When the kids arrive, I’m through!

  1. Lisa,
    Putting up with hubby and the kids can be stressful or I can only imagine as I am not married or have kids!
    Your friend,
    David Fox

    1. Yes, David. It certainly can be. But also so much fun. I've enjoyed just about every minute of it. :)
