Green Snake Face….a true story.
All my life I’ve dealt with boys,
snakes and dirt instead of toys.
They knew my first name in the local ER,
Big wheels on toes, hair stuck in tar
I had two boys of my own that were wild as two boars,
Then I remarried and I got two boys more.
But then a very happy and wonderful surprise!
A son and daughter in law pregnant before our eyes.
I paced in that birthing room forward and back,
And at last came the baby,,,,,beautiful “Jack”!
I loved him so much I’ll have to say,
Girls just didn’t matter on that wonderful day.
But a couple of years later they “blossomed” once more,
I said, I’m not even going through that girl wish door!
But of course the “frills” were in the back of my mind,
And yay, here came “Natalie”, a one of a kind!
I honestly didn’t know quite how to act!
I thought I might break her as a matter of fact,
I bought dolls and pink blankets and girly things of all manner,
I even bought a “HOW TO” For Dumb Grammy planner.
I fixed up a room full of girly and more,
They loved to see me coming at the baby stores!
But as time passed we noticed through our joys,
The frill-girl started acting just like the boys!
I needn’t have stocked up on all that pink lace,
Cause we got us a Tom-girl with a green snake face.
