When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.....

This is a cute poem
When I'm an old lady, I'll live with each kid,
And bring so much happiness just as they did.
I want to pay back all the joy they've provided.
Returning each deed! Oh, they'll be so excited!
When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.

I'll write on the walls with reds, whites and blues,
And I'll bounce on the furniture wearing my shoes.
I'll drink from the carton and then leave it out.
I'll stuff all the toilets and oh, how they'll shout!
When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.

When they're on the phone and just out of reach,
I'll get into things like sugar and bleach.
Oh, they'll snap their fingers and then shake their head,
When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.

When they cook dinner and call me to eat,
I'll not eat my green beans or salad or meat,
I'll gag on my okra, spill milk on the table,
And when they get angry I'll run if I'm able!
When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.

I'll sit close to the TV, through channels I'll click,
I'll cross both eyes just to see if they stick.
I'll take off my socks and throw one away,
And play in the mud 'til the end of the day!
When I'm an old lady and live with my kids.

And later in bed, I'll lay back and sigh,
I'll thank God in prayer and then close my eyes.
My kids will look down with a smile slowly creeping,
And say with a groan, "She's so sweet when she's sleeping!"

it inspired me to write my own:
When I live with my kids, as an old lady ya know
I'll sit drinking wine and smoking doobies to show
How progressive and liberal their Mum has become.
They'll be so proud and say "YUP that's OUR Mum"
I'm sure they will because when they were teens
they'd yell out so often I was old fashioned and mean. 
I'll play rock oldies so loud the walls shake and when they complain I'll yell "give me a break ! "
I'll wear crazy clothes from my old Hippy days and flirt with each fella that passes my way.
I'll get some tatoos in strategic places... Pierce my brows and my lips...
Can't you just see their faces? 
I'll stay out so late THEY'LL stay up and worry
then when I get home ask them "Why should I hurry?"
When I live with my kids as an old lady ya know
 I'll sit drinking wine, smoking doobies to show
 How progressive and liberal their Mum has become.
 Then if they scold me for things that I've done
 I'll smile and say "hey don't ruin MY fun" 
and if they continue to chide me and moan 
my eyes I'll roll and yell PUHLEEZE just LEAVE ME alone !
When I live with my kids as an old lady ya know
It will bring back fond memories of so long ago.
I'll sit drinking wine, smoking doobies to show
How progressive and liberal their Mum has become!
