Person I ever met, - he says. - After Grandma.
He must have misspoken, I think. I am
The vicious enforcer, I come from
The land of "No," I never
Let him do what he wants, I always
Make him do what he has to. At dinner, I
Holler at them: " Put your feet
Down! Sit up
Straight!" Each evening, I check their
Homework, backpacks, reading, showers.
I used to think that being mom means
Giving them hugs and kisses
Holding them when they are sad,
Being happy when they are happy. Now
The main thing seems to be
Telling them what to do, checking, and
Some day it will
Make a difference.
