Hi Coo Fri Day

September 14, 2007

Here we go again.

Haiku Friday

I seemed to get a good response with last week’s installment so I was inspired to do more…

This week is dedicated to my girl and the fact that she’s starting school on Monday.

School is starting soon
Where the hell is that baby?
Flew out the window?

***

I’m a momma to
a preschooler with feelings
How did that happen?

***

Occasionally
being a mom is easy
but not when she’s three

***

Many fears come through
you are a strong little girl
The fears are all mine

***

If only I could
keep you this age forever
time passes quickly

***
Never has a week
gone by so quickly, now you’re
seven days older

***

Like a teenager
I don’t have the heart to say
you are only three

***

Your classroom is set
Your artwork is hanging up
My heart is aching

***

Teachers can be cool
Classmates can be so much fun
Mothers are catty

***

It’s not about me
It’s about you becoming
A little lady

***

I’ll always be there
I may not be in the room
I’ll be in your heart

    time passes quickly
