This morning

A teaspoon in the toilet (?!)
Baby poop on the floor
My nine-year-old won't get out of bed
And my four-year-old wants "More!"

My toenails stay unpainted
Gym is out the door
It's weeks and weeks since I've slept enough
And my energy's on the floor

My back hurts like the devil
My haircut's overdue
Once again we're late for school
And my morning's a dull blue

This is the life I've chosen
I've no right to complain
But nothing I do is ever enough
And I think I'm going insane
