If you read my post yesterday, you know I am stuck in a painful parenting place. Once again, I turn to an animal poem to make me smile. If only we could all just bounce a ball and wiggle and jiggle and feel happy with who we are.


The seals all flap
Their shining flips
And bounce balls on
Their nosey tips,
And beat a drum,
And catch a bar,
And wriggle with
How pleased they are.
