I was sitting with a Sunday attitude
Barely removed my nightly snood
Thought I’d take in some mindless boobtube
When the phone rang asking if one of the grand brood
Could spend the day–had to get up my fortitude
Caring for kids isn’t “baby”sitting
It sure beats rocking and knitting
I said yes and was resolute
In fact it’s usually quite a hoot
Playing games with no refute
No cheating allowed, that is resolute.
Sorry, Scrabble, Pitch and Rummy
He learns fast, played brilliantly
Used my own hints against me
Till I had an epiphany, thought differently.
He still won two against three
In Scrabble. I received no sympathy.
