I live in a zoo

Twas the night before last,

and all through the house

everyone was sleeping, or at least, I was trying to.

The kids in their beds,

early for once,

except for Kendall,

she slipped into mine (claiming it was more comfortable, she couldn’t sleep, and since Tia was gone,why not?)

I was hoping for sleep

just four hours, unbroken.

Uma had other ideas,

getting me up quite often (11:30, 2:0, 4:30, 7:00).

The next day came early,

work and school for most,

for me, I also had horses.

Wandering outside,

all bundled up and cold

wondering how I ended up

putting hay outside in piles on a 12F day.

The day slipped by,

my wife came home,

and went to ride horses with Kendall,

both girls’ dream.

“I have a problem”

something you never want to hear

a dog kicked,

and an emergency vet trip.

Back home late,

getting kids off to bed

we find the kittens have come,

three more little ones in the house.

I’m not sure how it happened

Not sure when my world grew

I married a lovely women

and along came a zoo.
