Oh, Well


This was supposed to me my office space.
The kids have completely taken over.
It's their office.
I ask them where a pen is and they tell me.
"Where's the scotch tape?", I plead.
"Over here, mom", they say.
"Can I use my computer?", I beg.
"No, it's still my turn.", they say.
"I really need the calculator", I tell them.
"Oh, we lost that a long time ago.", they say.
"Oh well, I guess I'll go work in the kitchen some more",
I say out loud to no one who is listening.
Over time I have come to realize that
my office space is the kitchen and the laundry room.
I have officially surrendered.
Which truth be told; my office looks just as messy as their mess.
