The Stuff of Life

Poop and Hair Bows

Breakfast lunch or dinner

No matter what the fare

You love to talk of poop

Or at least of underwear.


You grin from ear to ear

When you make a farting sound

There will never be a boring day

As long as you’re around.


You give your brothers wedgies

Nicknamed your favorite cereal “butt crack”

When it comes to bathroom humor

You will never ever lack.


So how my heart did flutter

The proudest mommy in the land

When I found your handmade bow

On top of my nightstand.


You may talk silly bathroom nonsense

And love to gross me out

But you also love your mama

Of that I have no doubt.
