The Shrinking House

Updated on March 17, 2010

The Shrinking House

I'm living in a shrinking house

Where everything gets smaller

Mom said it's not the house

But me. I'm just getting taller

The kitchen counter way up high

Is where my mom will cook

Today if I stretch up real tall

I can peak and take a look

I thought the window in the den

Had some how gotten lower

Mom just laughed and said to me

"Son YOU are the grower!"

The house it is not shrinking

No, it's not at all

The house is still the same size

I'm just getting tall!

      You are too funny Quill!!! I remember going back into a ladies dress store up in Alaska that my mother shopped in when I was about 6 years old. It seemed so very big ... until I went back at 23 ... My, what a cute LITTLE shop it was!

      Well that is why I have lost so much of my hair...growing to tall for it...that would also explain why its now growing out of my nose and my ears..

      Hugs and Blessings
