When a la carte becomes an art

Miss "Mix and Match"
More socks to snatch

From the drawer
You must pull FOUR?!

Did only two
Just make you blue

That now four
Is what you adore?

For feet, it's clear
But why hands, my dear?

Her smile and dance tell me she's smitten
With her new fashion look--the summertime mitten.

OK with me, but just once more
Why, also, the colors be four?

What could be left
To match in her drawer?

Quoth Daughter #2,

Who knew socks could be so fun! And your rhyme- Watch out Dr Suess here comes Sue J!

HA! Funny. When I first saw the picture I thought that was a cast on her arm and saw her on the trampoline! Glad to see no broken bones, however, there are still 76 days to go!!
Happy Day!

I wonder if ADHDME realizes that D2 has already had a cast (or 2...or3), and certainly doesn't need another. Perhaps the socks remind her of her cast. Or maybe a sock puppet! Or maybe its just FUN!

You're a poet - I didn't knowit!
