TGIF

O miraculous weekend!
O glass of Chardonnay!
Wrapped up like a hair around a pinkie toe,
I cling to your salvation.

Keep me afloat as I drown in last weeks laundry.
Refresh

(Hold up, my son is eating a Sharpie....)

Refresh me with your cool calmness
Bathe me in

(Son screaming from play yard)

O Chardonnay!
Every sip a minute closer until Daddy gets home.

So funny! When Taylor was Noah's age, I was super hard core. Mikes hard lemonades all the way. If it was open before Jimmy got home, then he really knew it was a bad day! ;-) Just know it could be worse. You could be 8 months pregnant. ha ha!

Laurel said...

Please write one about a margarita:) too.

Karen (KayKay) said...

Very funny!

Oh my, you are bringing back memories of how I used to wait at the door for my husband to get home, hand him the baby and go straight to the bath with a glass of wine.

Renée aka Mekhismom said...

This is funny and I agree with Laurel. Please write one about a margarita!

Jeanne said...

Nothing like a good ode to celebrate the day -- and the wine helps, too!

Joy said...

LOL! I'd like to see what you can do with a shot of vodka and haiku. ;o)

Karen said...

You must have been an English teacher or an attentive English student in the past...I was impressed by your ode! Especially the use of the traditional "O" :)

Mimi said...

Haha, this is still relevent when your kids are older!

Mandy said...

Hooray for Chardonnay!! My favorite!

♥spoiled mommy♥ said...

Thrifty and Chic Mom said...

Funny, thanks!

Creative Junkie said...

LOL at the sharpie!

blueviolet said...

You're too funny!

Melinda said...

That's hilarious! My mom gave me a wine glass when I had my last child and it had things like "mommy's pacifier", "nurse this", and "I need to wine too" - your poem reminded me of it. Thanks for the laugh.

Jamie said...

Too funny!

jubilee said...

Well put. The kids, the baby, the mommy all eagerly awaited daddy's arrival each day. And all the poor guy wanted to do was put his feet up for a few minutes before the REAL work began!

Preston said...

That is perhaps the best poem ever! Ok, maybe that's a tad bit of an exaggeration, but I loved it just the same. Do you think you could do one for the Martini? You know like Ode to a Martini or Martini, Why Are Thou So Fabulous? Or maybe even I Wish I Was an Olive in a Martini...it could be done to the turn of Oscar Mayer Weiners! (Did I spell that right?)

Cammie said...

this is the best poem I have ever read.

ALVN of WhisperWood Cottage said...

I love the pause for "my son's eating a sharpie" LOL! That made me smile!

Oh2122 said...

I may hit the packie for a box-o-wine after the weekend I've had... After I stop my son from eating the kleenex he just found!
