I Got Mothered Today

Updated on May 29, 2013

I Got Mothered Today

I got MOTHERED today.....

My name was first

a scream

fire engine loud mouth

sated only by

sweet drops of milk.

My name was then

MMMMM

chubby wet fingers

reaching for my face.

My name was then

MAMA

as unsteady

wobbly legs

ran to me

as I returned through the door.

My name was then

MOMMY

as a bloody

elbow was cleaned

of sand and salty tears.

My name today was

MOTHER!

as sea blue eyes

rolled in my direction

and you ran off with a quick wave.

I got MOTHERED today

and it was still beautiful

      Theater girl,

      I knew I was missing one! This is beautiful and the epitome of motherhood. So sweet and adorable. The ups and downs of getting 'mothered'; but they're all really ups, aren't they? Nobody does it like you! Excellent!

      Up and more + sharing!
