Haikus About Childrearing

It is 3 a.m.
She wails from the next room
My head bangs the wall

Tomorrow morning
Will be without fights and screams
Or possibly not

Please pick up your toys
Pick them up right now or else
Aargh! Legos are sharp

Independent cuss
Or strong and willful leader
Please remind me which

Pajama cuddles
The smell of clean hair and skin
I love my children

The penultimate...
I believe it is the best.
Many should read it.
