A Gift for All Moms and their Quarantined Kids

When Mommy Puts Her Jeans On
by Susan Bourrie


When Mommy puts her jeans on,
It’s a special time, you see.
It means she has a lot to do
And needs some help from me.

When Mommy puts her jeans on,
We might clean house all day.
But if I do a somersault,
Mommy always stops to play.

When Mommy puts her jeans on,
We might start planting flowers,
Then sit and talk and watch them grow
For hours and hours and hours.

When Mommy puts her jeans on,
It might be time to make
Oatmeal cookies, whole-wheat bread.
They smell good when they bake.

When Mommy puts her jeans on,
We rest the way I like.
We have a picnic in the park
And ride on Mommy’s bike.

When Mommy puts her jeans on,
I know whatever we do
Is going to be fun for both of us,
So I put on my jeans too.
