A New Pet For The Kids (limerick)

Updated on July 14, 2013

My wife got the children a pet

A moment I’ll never forget

Such smiles I did see

As dreams were set free

They even taught me how to set

      Your wife has it all, a pet for the kids, as well as a husband.

      Nothing like getting your hair pulled and being rode... then of course there's the things the kids do too! Ha ha... I'm kidding; this is funny though!

      Daddy always makes a good horsie. I guess it will always be....

      It's all fine and dandy

      To be a dad who's so handy.

      If the kids should insist on a bridle and reins,

      Quit playing horsey and buy them toy trains.
