We’re Sorry To See Mom Go But... (limerick)

We took mom to airport today

For with us she finished her stay

It bought so much glee

To my wife and me

(That) tomorrow she’ll be on her way

Nothing like having your home back, regardless of who is staying. Hope your Mom doesn't keep up with your HubPages poems. lol. Good one Martin.

Mom means well and she probably wants to get back to her own home.

Typical example of overstaying your welcome.

Do you ever sleep? Anyway, I can relate to your limerick regarding those who stay longer than one night.

Funny, and I'm sure a lot of people feel this way. I've had two mothers-in-law, and I've enjoyed them both. May they RIP.

Chinese saying: After three days the fish begins to stink. I often think of that when I go visiting, but I love having people come and stay and not just for three days, either.

With some moms or mother-in-laws the going can be rough.
