Messy, mired, muck!
Mating, milking, monotone.
Mustered miracle!

Manhandled, mauled, moved, mixed,
Mercilessly markered, marred.
Marshaled mastermind!

Mutinous mongrels,
Malcontent moppet minions.
Matchless Mariner!


This was a fun set to write! I restricted myself to only using words that started with the letter “m”, which made it fun to read aloud. As I wrote these I tried to capture some of the challenges I’ve witnessed in mothering small children (with a bit of humor) and the incredible triumph that I see in Katie as she mothers our crew through it all. She is truly a mustered miracle, a marshaled mastermind, and a matchless mariner!
