Yes, I am a Mean Mom.
I won't let you drive to work when it's snowing outside and the
town we live in forgets to send out the salt trucks.
I will pick you up at 11:30 at night because
the snow that fell earlier is now turning to ice and
the town we live in STILL didn't send out the salt trucks.
I won't let you drive to school when the roads are
still icy and it's only 11 degrees outside.
I will make you ride the bus so I know you'll be safe.
I will make you go to school when you say you're too tired from working.
I will make you do your homework and clean your room and
clean the bathrooms.
Everyone needs to know how to clean a toilet.
I will make you make your bed.
Even if you're just going to get back in it at night.
I will make you eat a good dinner and not have a bowl of popcorn instead.
I will make you go to church when you want to stay home and play on the computer.
I will make you study your math even if you
will never use it again.
One day you'll look back and see that I did all
this because I love you more than my own life
and you'll think maybe I wasn't so mean after all.
