I Love to Be a Mother #40

Challenge #40 is "I Love to be a Mother" author unknown

I Love To Be a Mother

Some houses try to hide the fact
that children shelter there.
Ours boasts of it quite openly,
the signs are everywhere.
For smears are on the windows,
little smudges on the doors,
I should apologize, I guess,
for toys strewn on the floor.
But I sat down with the children
and we played and laughed and read;
And if the doorbell doesn't shine,
their eyes will shine instead.
For when at times I'm forced to choose
the one job or the other;
I like to be a housewife but
I love to be a mother.

Remember, you don't need to choose the entire poem... it could just be a line or a word!!!
You do not need to be a mom to play along!

You have until May to link your layout, card or 3D element to Mr. linky.
Can't wait to see what you create!
