The challenge of child rearing

~~Meg Endures the Daily Grind

By Elton Camp

To sleep in, Meg needn’t try
Others’ needs she can’t deny

There’s no break from that way
An early start comes to her day

A shrill cry from baby’s room arises
To awaken her kids of various sizes

His diaper is stinky, vile and rank
A bottle of milk he slowly drank

Through the house the others ran
Breakfast insistently to demand

Day continues as no delight
Cry, fuss, scream and fight

Meals to make, cleaning to do
To live that way, Meg does rue

The bedtime hassle soon at hand
It’s almost more than she can stand

Her parenting skills put to the test
Exhausted but little time to rest
