Fun Monday - The Crappy Poem I Have to Write

So this week's Fun Monday is brought to us by Nikki at What the Hell Do I Do. She has a good one this week and here are her rules...

1. Write a short poem. It can be about anything and it doesn't even have to be good.

2. Whip out your crayons, markers, paint, etc. and illustrate your poem (or have your kid, dog or cat do it).

3. Post your poem and illustration on your blog next Monday (uh...duh.)



So I am totally going to kind of cheat I guess...but here goes.




"Me"

I'm a cool mom
Cause I love to cook

But what I love to cook the most
Doesn't involve just measly toast

Pancakes must be the thing I do right
As Ashley thinks I cook all night

Working on those weekend pancakes
That somehow Ashley thinks fly in the air
She must have been dreaming
or kidnapped by a bear
who loved to throw pancakes into the air

The End of the Crappiest Poem ever written.

So this poem comes from this, what I was given as part of my Mother's Day gift from Ashley. I have never thrown pancakes in the air, so I have no idea where she got that one from....Oh, and I'm not 32. I will be in a few months, but not now. Just thought I would clarify...




Have fun reading the other poems!

Love the poem. Very sweet picture.
That would be something to see flying pancakes. The kids would think that is so cool.

Thats to cute. And why do our kids always think we are older then we are and do strange things?
I didn't take this one up I'm not a poet at all.

Crappiest poem ever...NOT hardly!! It was very nice cute! It was inspired from your daughter! Love the Mother's day gift from Ashley!!

theotherbear said...

Very cute. And I am impressed by your pancake flipping ability.

willowtree said...

I love food poems! Great picture.

Nikki got your address wrong (she transposed two letters) although that doesn't seemed to have stopped anyone from finding you.

C said...

These lines make a great bit of prose. Poetry is what you see and how you tell others what you see.

la bellina mammina said...

hey- your poem rocks! I can even try to rap it...;-)

BS said...

Just pretend that you are flipping pizza dough in the air - I am sure you can do that too! Kids are amazing aren't they? So NOT a crappy poem.

Pamela said...

I figured out the transposed letters at work.. but just now am able to comment .. busy evening.

I'm coming for breakfast to see the pancakes planes flying around. Do you shoot the sausage and fling the fruit, too?
yum

You mums - have so many talents!!

Nicole said...

I LOVE THE PICTURE!!! Priceless. Good job! (nikki)

Nicole said...

Oh and I am sorry for the bad link to you. I fixed it as soon as I found out!

ChrisB said...

I missed your poem yesterday, don't think it was there when I first checked. I think it is a very cute little poem and if you've never tossed a pan cake well it's time to practise!!

SJ said...

Totally a cute poem! And I love Ashley's drawing. It's priceless!
