As I tried to leave the house – a poem

As I tried to leave the house

After four days with the boys at home

On our way out the door to go to school

I discovered just how much Jack disliked the new strawberry bars

By stepping into a glob with my bare toes

Then spying another close by.


Once we made it to the drive,

With the car in sight and door locked behind,

I found the rest of the strawberry glue

Clinging to Jack’s pants.


He gets Cheerios from now on.
