When there's grated cheese glued to the carpet,
When there are toys strewn all over your floors,
Breathe in .... give a shrug, give your toddler a hug,
There'll be time enough later for chores.
One day when they've grown and have from the nest flown,
Your surfaces shiny and bright,
You'll miss all the mess, the chaos and stress,
So cherish the moment right now.
