Mommy Has a Cold

My head is so hot,
My feet are so cold.
My whole body aches,
I feel 300 years old.

My throat, how it hurts.
My voice sounds like a frog,
but then, in the distance, as though in a fog,
I hear three small voices, three cats, and one dog.

Mommy she hit me!
Mommy she bit me!
Mommy, please, Mommy
please Mommy, come quickly

Mommy, I need you!
Mommy, what shall I do?
My hair needs some brushing,
and I've lost my new shoe!
Mommy, oh Mommy,
please wipe my butt, too!

The beds all need making,
the house is a mess.
There's dusting and vacuuming
and all of the rest.

So I sniffle and snuffle,
I moan and I cough.
Do I whine and complain?
Oh, no, I do not!

This household, it needs me,
there's just no other way.
So I drink some green tea
and get on with my day.
Suck it up is my motto,
and that's all that I'll say.

  1. Wow nice rhyme. It made me smile :) Thank you Jessica.

  2. How are the sea monkeys doing? Kaitlyn added the eggs today and told me that there isn't any sea monkeys there, only bubbles and sand.

  3. I think they might be dead. I can't see any moving anymore. Not sure why. I had some before Sammy was born and they did just fine. Not giving up hope yet.
