Toddler for Sale
(inspired by Sister for Sale by Shel Silverstein, nearly plagiarized by me)

One toddler for sale!
One toddler for sale!
One crying, whining toddler for sale!
I'm not really kidding, so who'll start the bidding?
Do I hear a dollar?
A nickle?
A penny?
Oh isn't there, isn't there, isn't there any
One person who will buy this toddler for sale
This crying, whining, messy toddler for sale?!

But seriously. I need a vacation. Or at least an uninterrupted meal.


  1. I have seen my own daughters go through this same sentiment and post the same comment ~ child for sale. I survived those days with "This too shall pass". Prayers of strength beyond your means headed your way.

  2. Oh, and The Next Chapter is really Debi Shannon:)

  3. Thanks Debi!! I'll try to remember that :-)


Leave some love.
