Parenting Philosophy in Verse

My parenting philosophy
(For those with curiosity):
Raising your kids will never be
a life without adversity.

From the first moment that they place
That tiny bundle near your face
Your leisure and your private space
Forever gone... without a trace.

Each special child that you raise
Will thrive on Cheerios and praise.
Although admirers may gaze
At your sweet brood, do not be fazed

When they quick-change their angel smiles
For devilish and impish wiles--
Not only jump through laundry piles
But spread their toys for miles and miles.

Like an old mop you may feel wrung,
Or like a creaking swing all swung.
Remember though to hold your tongue
While these, your little ones, are young.

Antics wild and quite outrageous
From child to child are contagious.
What's the skill most advantageous?
Constant prayer--now stay courageous!
