by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies – Mother’s Boys
Editor’s note: Welcome to another episode of ‘Cognitive Dissonance with Nancy Campbell’. Remember all that recent lecturing and hectoring by Nancy that you must keep your house immaculate while smiling and controlling your thoughts? Apparently that does not apply in her world if you have a pile of boys to raise. She just cannot make up her mind what is and isn’t the most important. Plus generalizations about the sexes don’t help anyone.
Yes, I know there are stains on my carpet,
The traces of small muddy boots,
And I see your fair tapestry glowing,
And flash in your dresses so bright.
Now, I think I’m a neat little woman
And I like my house orderly too,
And I’m fond of all dainty belongings,
Yet I would not trade places with you!
No! Keep your fair home with its order,
It’s freedom from bother and noise,
And keep your own fanciful leisure,
BUT GIVE ME MY FOUR SPLENDID BOYS!
