You blew me away with your haikus--some of them made me laugh 'til I cried, and others...well, they just made me cry. But we had to have finalists, so I reluctantly narrowed them down. Here are the top five:
World's Greatest Mommy knows the power of a good breakfast:
Smell of new crayons
Mixes with muffins and fears
Another first day.
Traci at Whosoever Believeth has her own set of challenges:
School at home is hard
Explaining Math makes Mommy's brain
need more coffee.
Carol at A Second Cup got me all choked up with this one:
Tall as an adult
A little boy yesterday
He walks to high school
This one by Crying Moms just made me LAUGH:
Spazzy 1st grader
Is it wrong to drop kick her
into her classroom?
Angie at Spring Of Joy gives us another tear-jerker:
Up the stairs he runs
Then turns to sign "I love you"
When did he grow up?
