A Duck’s Day

 

Today is a special day for Duck.
It’s his birthday.
He just informed me that he is now a man.

 

Tween birthday's are fun

 

Regardless of his misconception,  it STILL is his birthday,
So…
We went out to his choice of finer eating establishments

 

Because 'Choke and Puke' isn't polite

And
To the car wash.

 

I had to do something

Yeah, the car wash. I know, right?
Returning home, he chased his new drone around the yard

 

Lift off isn't easy

While I chased HIM with the camera.
Until.
It was the time I’d dreaded most.
Movie time.
And his choice.

 

Not a Chipmunks fan

That’s right.
Alvin and the Chipmunks.
Oh….JOY.
I’d rather have been kissed¬† by my sister.

 

New Years...fun

Oh wait.
I already had been. Like 2 days ago.
Yeah…so anyway…
Duck had a blast

 

is a Happy Mom

And torturing me just added to his enjoyment.

 

Happy Birthday Duck
I love you so much
(even though you think you’re a man-and you’re not)
Love,
Mom

So This Is Forty: I Made It

 

Snow on my bday-it figures
I said flurries! Not Winter Storm! Geesh…

 

 

So this is 40

and what have you done?

I turned another year older

Guess what? Hot flashes are not fun

 

And so this? Yeah. This is forty (groan)

and I made it, I’m totally stunned

All those nearest me,

really should run…

“like to the nearest store

and get blankets-it’s HOT! Aren’t you hot?

It’s cranked up to HELL in here!”

 

So I had a Winter Storm for a birthday,

Deep within me, cabin fever has sprung

Causing uncontrolled jitters among many,

my family for one

 

Dear Gawd, I’m staring at forty~

is this what I’d feared? Maybe it’s not all that bad

I mean, no white hairs are present
no wrinkles are here

 

SO now matter how you take this,

it’s all meant in fun

Just because I don’t remember,

doesn’t mean you can massacre this song as badly as I have done

 

 
Sorry John, it wasn’t personal.
