Today's Mischief in Haiku and Video

Mama's Losin' ItToday at Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop one of the challenges was to write a haiku describing what you love about an ordinary day. A few short lines? I'm up for that on this busy laundry day!

Of course, it was harder than I thought, but here's my effort, plus a video at the end that shows off those mischievous grins!

I hear the ruckus
Yelling from the other room
I run not knowing

I find you all safe
Mischievous grins on bright faces
Making me wonder

Was the trouble real
Or is it that you enjoy
Watching Mommy run?

Three curious boys
Many adventures to come
What will today hold?

No joke that's one busy normal day! I have a hard time keeping up with two teens let alone triplets. Nice video too. At least they're happy....for the moment.

Best wishes!

Oh my gosh, they're adorable! I imagine they DO keep you running - but you gotta smile looking at those faces, right?

Wonderful poem considering that you have TRIPLETS and it was laundry day. Cripes!

So glad I found your blog!!! I'm 27 1/2 weeks along with BBB triplets, and have a 20 month old daughter. I'm sure I'll be able to steal ideas from you and get a glimpse of what our future will hold!!
