Outside Right... NaPoWriMo Day 3

Feeling a little bit sentimental as I watch my boys grow into young men...

Outside Right

Just when I thought I had it all figured out
You came along and turned my world rightside up.
The grey depths of your eyes beckoned with care
Pulling me in, sheltering me there.

A small flash of smile, a dimple or two
Giggling and squealing and laughing anew.
Tiny fingers, always so sticky and sweet
I always knew you were my special treat.

Each day that you grow, I feel you pulling away
But the bond doesn’t break, it’s strong and will stay.
Thank you for flipping all the wrongs outside right
You strengthened my heart with your special light.


  1. I really like that Jennifer. I did not know you had a poet's heart. :)

  2. What a cutie-pie picture! Don't you just love being a Mom:))

    1. I'd post a recent picture - but the boy wouldn't be too pleased. He'll be turning 18 this year... and yes - being a mom never gets "old". :)
