So we all know how kids are... right?
Oh, by the way...one of my favorite songs he sings goes like this:
Oh by the way...
It's Monday morning, I'm running late there's not a minute to spare
Mom calls out, 'come on let's go' as she finishes drying her hair.
Now I'm in my place with a smile on my face just thinking about my day
Then I think of some things I'm supposed to bring, and that's when I say...
Dear, mom.... oh by the way
I need an orange juice can, 4 cotton balls and 6 rubberbands
and by the way I'm an angel in the play, I'm gonna sing and I need some wings.
Well I guess I've induced some stress mom's smile begins to fade
and she runs to the kitchen and digs though the trash for the can from the lemonade.
Now I start to protest but she's doing her best so then I try to make it right...
I say, I need everything by 8:15. BUT I don't need the wings till tonight.
Oh by the way, I need an ORANGE juice can, if it's lemonade will the teacher understand?
And by the way they're having meatloaf today,
if you don't mind a bunch... I'm gonna need a lunch.
Sometimes I just don't believe how resourceful mom's can be.
She gets the cotton balls and the rubberbands from her vanity.
I've got a lemonade can not quite the right brand, but mom says 'It will do.'
Then we're out of the door it's 7:54, I won't be late for school.
Oh by the way, meatloaf is better than it seems...
for my lunch mom packed a can of sardines.
And for the play it's sisters costume from ballet I'm gonna sing in her butterfly wings.
