#SoCS – Grounded


My prompt has me thinking about all the ways my kids keep me grounded.

When my mind takes off on flights of fancy, into fictional realms,

my kids bring me back.

When I think perhaps I’m meant to be rich–maybe even famous,

my kids cost me money and remind me I’m just Mom.

When I want to go out …

I realize I’m actually grounded, unable to leave the house.

Now if only they’d send me to my room.

  4. LOL I so agree about being sent to your room! Sometimes not even the bathroom is my own – LOL


  5. Aren’t kids just the joy of your life, Linda. I have exactly the same experience with mine.
