Queen of the Big Top
Quick change of focus as tasks line up.
Zip through the canned responses.
Stepping with care on the line.
Eyes fixed away from the drop.
Touch of sequins may jazz the day.
Mama jumbles through rehearsed act.
One woman show can avalanche.
Family troupe aches to applaud.
Some days I feel like a high wire performer trying to balance the family load on my shoulders as I step gingerly through the day. As many of us know, it's tough to keep that smile all the time when you feel overwhelmed. However, families need the show to go on. I want to keep our happy little circus running. My kids know how to keep me on my toes with new demands on my balance, patience, creativity, and stamina. Good thing I have my chocolate power boost moments.
Wonder if I should make my own sequined mama circus outfit? Now that's something I could make with that bedazzler machine :)
