Hi there friends! I know I said I was leaving BUT I have more to tell you…
I want you to know what inspired my latest masterpiece: A Poem for Moms. (You can watch my Oscar deserving performance of the poem over at BLUNTmoms)
It all started last week at Francesca’s soccer tournament. I am happy to report that her team has come first place, by the way. She is a talented little miss, that’s for sure.
Anyway, I was so proud of the girls so I made everyone on the team a cupcake to congratulate them. I also made a giant sign that said “Larry Lobster’s Cafe’ is the Best!’ ” (that’s their team).
I brought my megaphone as well and I shared a few fabulous new cheers that I’d made just for the girls…
There I was, cheering them all on but then… something happened that really upset me.
(I’m taking a deep cleansing breath)
One of the moms, from the opposing team was a rather abrupt woman indeed. She said some very aggresive words to me (I could never repeat them they were just so rude). And then in a very hurtful move, she tore my megaphone from my hand, threw it on the ground and stomped on it.
I was speechless…
Needless to say, it’s broken now.
Well, as you know I’m a big believer in love and kindness so I just walked away…
And later I was inspired to pen this little poem:
A Poem for Moms
Why can’t it all just be good?
There are so many ways to be a mom
Now, let’s just stop and think about some…
Some moms are blunt
Some hold it all in
Some moms drink coffee
While others drink gin
Some moms play ball
While other do art
Some moms are so classy
And some moms fart
But all moms are talented
to some degree
But most aren’t as thoroughly skilled as me
But I won’t hold it against them
I’ll still be their friend
Because love and kindness
is how our hearts mend
So let’s all dance
and sing a little song
Come on moms,
Let’s all just get along!
See, I’m not just a talented dancer and yoga expert. I have an important message to send out to the mothers of the world: Let’s all just get along moms!
Send it out there friends; spread the word.
Now, my work here is done…
Love and kindness,
