Recently I received an email from a writer.
I get them all the time from people asking me to check out their books and I ignore them because I only read romantical type books anyway, no big deal.
The big deal this time was that this email came from a writer who is also a DudeMom.
Peyton Price wrote a book called Suburban Haiku: Boys to Men, all about her life with her Dudes.
In poem haiku form.
It’s funny and cute, and ridiculously easy to identify with for all moms, but especially those raising sons.
After reading it, I got the idea that it would be really fun to come up with some awesome haiku to match some of my DudeMomLife photos in honor of Mother’s Day.
I could email them to my DudeMom friends. Or just send them all a link to my blog right after I erase all of the posts in my archives that mention how much they annoy me when they let their kids crawl all over my couch with a ringpop on their middle finger and poopy diapers on their butts.
Right after I Googled haiku (hey, high school was forever ago, I forgot!).
These are what I came up with.
Mother’s Day Poems (or Haiku If You’re Nasty)…
I’d love to have some of you come up with your own DudeMom haiku. So I can feature them here for Mother’s Day. Feel free to email me your photo and haiku (I can make them pretty for you).
And be sure you check out the book; that would make Peyton Price’s Mother’s Day.
Also, because I can’t stop myself from finding more things to do with my time, I’ve decided to share a couple of mom & son type posts with you every week.
This one by Heidi Woodard on Momaha made me smile, and think I will probably never start a blog with my son. I hate being dumped.
Feel free to shoot me your best blog posts about life with boys; I’m happy to share them!
