Haiku – Mom – The True Rock Star

Robbed these two from myself. Not a lot of time to write something for mom this year, but I didn’t want to let the day go by without giving all moms a nod. I’m a stay at home dad and I see first hand how awesome moms are. They are true rock stars. Happy Mother’s Day to all moms out there.

Love, safety, comfort

In the caring arms of mom

All you ever need

+

How to describe a mom,

well,

it may be too hard to do,

without leaving out,

too many things,

that are true.

For a mom is a blessing,

a true gift from God,

her patience and virtue,

is something,

you could never prod?

Haiku – 3 Looks at Carry

Amusement park closed

Daddy carries his daughter

Passed out in his arms

+

A boat on the sea

Waves carry the brave sailor

Forward towards home

+

Through the fire and flames

One by one he carried them

No man left behind

I kept hearing these songs when I wrote this.

I thought I would share.

 

Happy Mother’s Day!

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Love is patient; love is kind. Love is not jealous; is not proud; is not conceited; does not act foolishly; is not selfish; is not easily provoked to anger; keeps no record of wrongs; takes no pleasure in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth; love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.

Haiku – Proud

Sleeping through the night

Son in his big boy bed

First time, all night long

+

My son has just moved over to his big boy bed. One day the crib, next his big boy bed. Growing so fast. I thought I would share this news, because I am so proud of him. I don’t know if you have seen this blog or not, but I have started talking about being not only a parent, but a stay at home dad. You can check out that blog here: daddystayhome.wordpress.com

How did you parents reading this handle your child’s sleep transition? Just curious.
