When I'm An Old Lady

I got this as a forward. I don't know the author and I am sure some have seen it before but I got a good laugh especially with the kinda day I've had today. Hope you enjoy!

WHEN I'M AN OLD LADY
When I'm an old lady, I'll live with each kid,
And bring so much happiness ... just as they did.
I want to pay back all the joy they've provided.
Returning each deed! Oh, they'll be so excited!
When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.

I'll write on the walls with reds, whites and blues,
And I'll bounce on the furniture. wearing my shoes.
I'll drink from the carton and then leave it out.
I'll stuff all the toilets and oh, how they'll shout!
When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.

When they're on the phone and just out of reach,
I'll get into things like sugar and bleach.
Oh, they'll snap their fingers and then shake their head,
When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.

When they cook dinner and call me to eat,
I'll not eat my green beans or salad or meat,
I'll gag on my okra, spill milk on the table,
And when they get angry... I'll run ... if I'm able!
When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.

I'll sit close to the TV, through the channels
I'll click,I'll cross both eyes just to see if they stick.
I'll take off my socks and throw one away,
And play in the mud until the end of the day!
When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.

And later in bed, I'll lay back and sigh,
I'll thank God in prayer and then close my eyes.
My kids will look down with a smile slowly creeping,
And say with a groan, "She's so sweet when she's sleeping!"


I know if my mom has just finished reading this, she is hysterically laughing with tears rolling down her face. Hope you have a good day Mom!

  1. Hi Christy!

    That is too cute of a poem! Thank you for making me laugh! It sounds like you are doing very well. I am so happy to hear the kids are happy in their new environment. You are an excellent mama!

    Love you, and God Bless,

    P.S. Michael is really wanting to come home. I am trying to find an attorney. Please pray for God to lead me to the right one! Michael didn't want to go back with his dad when he left after our Memorial Day weekend together. It was soooo hard to see him so sad!!
