Five Minutes Later

Why did I run the load today
When, five minutes later
They’ve come in from play?

Why did I put their cup in the sink
When, five minutes later
They want more to drink?

Why did I have them brush for bed
When, five minutes later
They’re eating some bread?

Why did I make them? I sigh and shrug.
Five minutes later,
One gives me a hug.

    1. I like that video that circles the internet years ago, wherein the toddler was literally pulling clothes, toys, etc. out of their places RIGHT BEHIND the mother putting them in. *sigh*
