When I’m an old lady

Jules —  January 14, 2006

When I’m an old lady, I’ll live with each kid,
And bring so much happiness…just as they did.
I want to pay back all the joy they’ve provided.
Returning each deed! Oh, they’ll be so excited!

When I’m an old lady and live with my kids

I’ll write on the wall with reds, whites and blues,
And I’ll bounce on the furniture…wearing my shoes.
I’ll drink from the carton and then leave it out.
I’ll stuff all the toilets and oh, how they’ll shout!

When I’m an old lady and live with my kids

When they’re on the phone and just out of reach,
I’ll get into things like sugar and bleach.
Oh, they’ll snap their fingers and then shake their head,
And when that is done I’ll hide under the bed!

When I’m an old lady and live with my kids

When they cook dinner and call me to eat,
I’ll not eat my green beans or salad or meat,
I’ll gag on my okra, spill milk on the table,
And when they get angry…I’ll run…if I’m able!

When I’m an old lady and live with my kids

I’ll sit close to the TV, through the channels I’ll click,
I’ll cross both eyes just to see if they stick.
I’ll take off my socks and throw one away,
And play in the mud ’til the end of the day!

When I’m an old lady and live with my kids

And later in bed, I’ll lay back and sigh,
I’ll thank God in prayer and then close my eyes.
My kids will look down with a smile slowly creeping,
And say with a groan, “She’s so sweet when she’ s sleeping!”

When I’m an old lady and live with my kids

  8. Steve and I lived with Steve’s parents for a couple of years when we first got married and were going to college. We’ve always told them we owe them several years of living with us someday. She sent me an email with this poem….I hope it’s not a warning!!!

  11. You know your getting old when it takes twice as long to look half as good. :cry

    I had to type this saying down before I forgot how it went.

    Funny, funny, Julie!! The comments are also very good by friends and family.

    I can see Marge Puckett doing that! :fish

  12. Mom D. that slogan is all too close to home, and it’s true. :cry
    I never thought I would be old, but I walk too keep younger and fit and I hurt so bad from the walk. I some times think I can’t win for losing.

  13. Your too cute, Julie!!! 😉

  14. That was Marlis not me! He he!

    Although I am beginning to see the aging process slowly sneaking up on me. I know, I know, I am still very young. But still, I am looking a lttle different in the mirror these days. Mid 30’s here I come!

  15. My Dr. told me when I hurt to take a hand full of aspirins and fill the tub with water as warm as I could stand it and put the aspirins in the tub and soak for 15 Min. Works for me. I like to put the candles around Deb gave me and lean against my nice comfy pillow she also gave me and just relax. It’s a really thoughtful gift for some one with back spasms or aches. Thanks again Deb.
    By the way, I haven’t heard any comments from any (Old) people yet. :rolleyes

  16. I love the poem,Jules! Your kids will owe you big time; it’s a good thing you have this handy blog to help you keep track of all they are doing in these younger years. :baby
