P.J.s and Morning Soccer

My most recent child. © Chel Owens

When sun’s just up,
though most still down,
and brother’s game
is ‘cross the town
and Mom’s not up
to laundry mounds,

Young Owens sports
the lion’s share
of smiles outside
‘spite morning air.
Says he, good sports
should not be bare.

For, when a game
of soccer’s viewed,
and when a mom’s
got quite the brood;
name of the game
is Don’t Be Nude.

Thus ends a long month. I’ll be round to read now that I’m not writing, but won’t post new content till November. ‘Bye!

    That little face is adorable in pjs or otherwise. A perfectly fine way to attend a soccer game. 🙂

      Definitely. I thought about putting both there, for Europe’s sake.

      Thank you. 🙂

        nobody is perfect, and I think kids benefit when their Mum can let a few chores slide …

      That’s wonderful. ❤️ The grands said these games are a bit too early for them! 🌞 Maybe we’ll get a time later than 9 a.m. and they can watch.
