It brings responsibility and laughter and sleepless nights.
And it brings toys.Â More toys than you could ever imagine.
You are pretty sure that they multiply overnight.
You find them in every room.Â And in your garden tub.
The garden tub that you were so excited about when you moved into this house.
You imagined bubble baths and bath oil.Â And quiet Sunday nights soaking.
Calgon take you away.
This thing called parenthood throws you sometimes.
Children have minds of their own and at the end of the day you give in.
You’re too tired to be taken away by Calgon.
And the garden tub you wanted so much becomes a swimming pool, 4-year-old size.
And instead of bubbles, it is filled with water guns, dinosaurs, and race cars.
And PEZ dispensers. You’ve learned not to question.
Quite a ride, this thing called parenthood.
