How on earth do you do it? ~ An ode to mum on the go’


How on earth do you do it?

Please tell me how…

You’re a super-organised mum

And I’m a jealous cow!


Jealous of your style,

Of your freshly made-up face

Of your poker straight hair

Of your people carrier ‘Espace’…


You never look flustered,

If you are, you hide it well,

You’ve always time to stop and chat

And on the PTA as well!


So, how on earth do you do it?

We all so want to know…

Is it the prozac or the pro-plus

Or the double espresso to-go?!…

  1. I used to know so many like this at Grace’s old school (something to do with the area!) although I am glad to say that they are more like me at where she is now! I reckon it is the coffee. Great poem – and very funny. Thank you for linking to Prose for Thought x

  2. Oh, this is so brilliant! I am in absolute awe of Mum’s that ‘look’ so together and seem so together too! They seem to effortlessly juggle so much (though I’m sure, under the surface, they have their ups and downs just like us all – only are very skilled at putting on a brave face).
