Five Minute Friday — Really



Just five minutes.






Today’s prompt: Real


Are you sure?
You want me to write about Real?
I’m a grannie.
I care for 2 year old and 8 month old sisters.
On good days writing is a challenge.
This Friday, oh, well

child: what’s this?
me: I don’t know it’s Grandpa Elmer’s.
child: Grandpa Elmer’s ?? mumble mumble
drops it and goes to next thing that catches her eyes.

That’s a sample of the real life from 6:30-4:30.
(Except for nap times 🙂 )
Question, answered, question answer, answered, repeat
Soaking it all up like a sponge.

I try to forget the day,
breaking my resolution to never say ‘shut up.’
I said it.
The next day,
she whispered while walking away,
shut up…shut up.

It’s real
what goes into the sponge
comes out.


Joining others and Gypsymama.

  1. Visiting from Gypsy Mama today. Smiled at this picture of your real life! 🙂

    • thanks for visiting — real life is good.

  2. I prefer this stage to the adolescent one in which all answers are known so no questions are asked 🙂
