Mother and Child by Rich Ladig

Currently unavailable for purchase

Mom was a classic
Tolerated most that I did
But that’s what mom’s do
They must love their kid.
She awoke from a nap
Mustache painted
Looked in a mirror
And almost fainted.
Enough is enough
Enough to me she said
Not easily removed
So she sent me to bed.
An artist I am
I tried to explain
”An artist you are
And also a pain".

    LOL, love the poem, and the little picture the child has drawn too… my son and I were having a laugh at his kindy drawings just the other night and I kept asking “What is that?” Wouldn’t leave a teacup on art, though! Lovely work.

  • Sounds like a sweet memory for you both!!!
    LOL…Ohhh, Virgo…a little spilt tea adds character!

    Think we are all natural born hooligans…and the artist types are still trying to perfect it for different reasons? Some are quite good at it!
