Dear Readers,

I guess you can tell
I’m struggling
to remain focused

I’m pulled like Silly Putty
in the hands of a toddler
Not understanding the
reality of sticky objects
she puts me in her sock

I’m spending time
fending off emotional assaults
attention seeking behavior
sorting through my purse
being accused of yelling

and yes
convincing silly putty
to come out of a
damned striped sock

I thought I got it all
this bubblegum like toy
to help with her sensory
processing issues

should I use peanut butter
to make it release
or freeze it
to make it hard
so I can scrape it off

(or, confirm to the family
that mom has lost it
for leaving clothes in the freezer?)

Any thoughts on the above post are appreciated! Otherwise, I think I must be living under a rock.
