So I've been spending my time getting ready for a writing conference, and writing poems for March Madness. :-) Pummeled won! Here is my poem:
Putting Away Toys
by Debbie LaCroix
Just one more toy to put away.
It will fit, all done today.
Oh no! There’s one toy more.
Squeezzzzze it in and push the door ,
Look, no more toys are on the floor.
Hello mommy, look, all clean.
The closet door? No you can’t see.
Ouch! All my toys just pummeled me!
Of course, my son Billy was my motivation. Though he has yet to live out this scenario, it is just a matter of time.
This week's word is: Forensic! I was inspired to write a mystery poem. It didn't turn out the way I was gearing, but still has a fun ending. Though Billy has yet to act out the toy poem, my husband gladly acted out the Forensic poem.
The count down is almost over until we will find out who wins. I have a great competitor, who teaches 4th grade. Her students are very supportive, so it's a little intimidating. :-)
