You cry and I don’t understand what you want. The screams and the tears, they drive me insane. Then you giggle, and gurgle, and squeal and coo and I suddenly love all the noise again.
Sometimes I just want to escape from the MESS.
The tornado of toys and clothes strewn about; the daily spills of food and drink. Oh why does it have to be so sticky all the time? Armed with my cloth I begin to erase all traces of mess then suddenly I’m stop in my tracks. There on the window pane are ten little fingers. Evidence of your presence in my life…and I sit and just enjoy the beautiful sight.
Sometimes I just want to escape the FRUSTRATION.
I have so many questions and not enough answers. Am I doing the right thing? Will you grow up the right way with the choices I’ve made? Why can’t I seem to get it just right? Then I put down the books and pick you up in my arms. I look in your eyes and I know deep inside that the best teacher of all is time and experience.
So we head of to play, making more noise mess…and I feel the frustrations all starting to fade.
And I know deep inside that escaping from you is the last thing I want. You caught my heart in a tight grip of love the day you became my child and I your mother.
