Our Funny Family


We are a funny family

Him a Brit

Me a midwesterner

from right here in these corn fields

yet we get along


Of course

our kids fight

“Get off my head!”

But not so much that we don’t enjoy them.



      “I’ll have an IPA, that is, unless you have Guinness on draft.”



      There is no such thing.


We’re crazy about our baby girl.

Who wouldn’t be after three boys.


“Mommy do you need any more help?” Jonathan asks.

“Yes, from Michael.  You’ve done your share.”



“Hello, Michael?” wave hands in front of face.  Michael starts to giggle.

I giggle too.


I’m eating lunch.

“Mommy, I love you.”  Patrick hugs me.


“What happened?” Stupid question I think.

Patrick crying.

      “Michael hit me.”

      “He took my truck.” Indignation



“You can leave the toys out that are set up, but everything else needs to be put away.  I’m going to fall on my face trying to navigate this mine field.”


In the car



“I’ve been working on the railroad, all the live long days.  I’ve been working on the railroad, just to pass the time away,

      “Sing it with me Michael!

“Can’t you hear the whistle blowing, rise up so early in the morn.  Can’t you hear the captain shouting, Dinah blow your horn.

      “Here’s the easy part.  Everybody now!

“Dinah won’t you blow, Dinah won’t you blow, Dinah won’t you blow your horn, your horn.”



“Patrick, please use your silverware, not your fingers.”



“Can I watch TV?”

“Only because you're sick” 

On the way out of the room, an after thought

      “and only an hour.  You can find something else to do.”



“There were five in the bed and the little one said, roll over, roll over, so they all rolled over and one fell out.”


Cozy, warm, flannel sheets

      Cold feet.

      Warm tummies.

Our family. Together.
