Somedays the kids have chocolate before it's 9am,
Somedays we'll read books all day and make a den,
Somedays I'll throw them the iPad for hours, just to have a break,
Somedays I'll make meals from scratch and teach my toddler how to bake,
Somedays I will swear under my breath from morning through to night,
Somedays we will play in the garden, until the sky loses light,
Somedays I feel like I'm just not cut out for all this, my patience is done,
Somedays I'll realise that I'm all they need, I'm a good mum,
Somedays are hard, somedays are long,
Somedays are full of tears, somedays are full of song,
Somedays we will dance, somedays we will smile,
Somedays I need to remind myself it's all worth while,
Someday when the world let's us back in, I hope to look back and see,
That every tear, that every smile - that every day, was just how it was meant to be.
