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

      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!

      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.
