    "They think that I'm a taxi and that I own a money tree"

    Haha, this poem just makes me realise how unappreciative us teenagers are! We can all be little buggers sometimes. I really liked this poem, because not only parents but teenagers can read it and think "That sounds too familiar!" A great write.
    Take Care.

    Rachel that is too cute!....and so doing that for years myself....

    They think that I'm a taxi and that I own a money tree
    A royal maid within their eyes, that is plain to see
    A butler and a secretary and of course I am their nurse
    They tell me where we're going and grab my keys and purse!

    ^ are so multi-talented...and such a wonderful person......this poem is hilarious and so funny......great job!!!!!5/5 Love, Mom

    Oh Rachel,

    This is so true. You have described my life to a tee.

    I think in the dictionary under "Mother" it should say... any and everything, that's what they'll be.

    It's really bad because there is no place in the house that is safe to hide... believe me, they can find you. I used to hide in the bathroom, but they go wise to that as I tried escaping to that sanctuary several dozen times a day. And heaven forbid if you should actually have to use it... they'll stand outside the door and hit when you try to exit. I wonder often how many of us would have taken on the job had we known the requirements ahead of time. lol. Practically all of us.

    Thank you so much for this... I think I'll make a copy of it and send it to good old mom. She should get a kick out of it.

    You made me smile with this, because it was so true, it goes to show how important mothers are, just imagine the mess and the dirt without them, eh? A very good write that flowed very well.
    love Tara-Kay

    LMAO!! Mothers are "jack of all trades" and are rarely appreciated for all that they do...
    This poem takes me back when I was a child living with my sister and 3 step siblings....sounded like home all over again. Wonderful write!!

    Ahh, such an adorabe poem. Really makes me appreciate my mum for all she does for me and my sister! (Including the part about the curls, haha) The part where you mentioned P&Q made me laugh, because I've never heard it mentioned in an actual poem. Love love love it. I'm showing this to my mum!

    A very nice piece. I liked it a lot. I loved the way you spoke about your/your character's average day. I like the title too, works well. Great story, I can feel the tiredness oozing from it. Great job indeed.


    P.S. Thanks for your comment on my poem 'Life in an insane world', or as it's actually put down 'Llife in an insane world', lol.

    Parenting is best investment. A cumbersome call of duty; with promising pay, at long run. Child raising is not for cowards.
