Friday haiku - week in review

My stepson's dear friend
came to our house on Sunday,
sleepovers are fun.

I planned better food
to make the young guest happy
he has nice manners.

And he loves to read!
for boys, good influences
are so hard to find.

The told me they were
headed off to the close park
and I said OK.

A minute later
My stepson comes in screaming
"He fell! Broke his arm!"

I ran out. He had.
They both jumped off the garage.
The friend could not fly.

I called 9-1-1.
His arm bent in the middle
in ways it should not.

His mom forgave us
after he had surgery
to place a few pins.

She said he always
wants to be a daredevil,
she is used to it.

I have girls! We have tea parties! We play Mommy and Daddy! God help me I hope they never feel the need to jump off buildings, or date the boys who do. But maybe that part is easier than all the drama? I guess that remains to be seen.

Join us with your haiku on your blog and link back to A Mommy Story for the linky love.

  1. Boys will be boys! Other people's children are so much more worrying than your own - quite nerve-racking entertaining them I found.
