So We Decided to Trade the Kids for a Puppy

Day #12 April's PAD Challenge entry:

So we decided to trade the kids for a puppy

There are days when I am so tired
Tired of cleaning up the same mess
Mess made by little kids who laugh
Laugh at me cleaning and cleaning and cleaning some more
More dirty rooms
Rooms littered with laundry
Laundry hiding the toys
Toys covering the floor
Floor speckled with spills
Spill splattered hands and faces
Faces that smirk and resist washing
Washing forever and ever…

So we decided to trade the kids for a puppy*


*I am kidding; no children were exchanged for a pet. They are all accounted for and sniggering as I clean up yet ANOTHER mess.

This is Day 12 post for the Poem-A-Day Challenge:
Today's prompt is: So We Decided to _______
