Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Limericks for Writer's Cramp about getting Jonah Russell to bed so I can go online.
In our home lives a monkey called Russ
who is expert at kicking a fuss.
Because I’m his mom,
I attempt to stay calm -
though I’d rather throw tantrums & cuss!

In my head are ideas burning bright
and inside I am itching to write;
but my boy will not sleep,
my frustration runs deep.
So can somebody put out his light?

The moment my monkey-boy’s down,
sleeping nice with a monkey-boy frown,
the computer’s online
and creative time’s mine
to go after the Writer’s Cramp crown!
