Ode to the Middle Child
To the child whose smile lights up the room
Makes my heart swell and sway to your content tune
Whose happy eyes sparkle and shine...
The one that has to be told... just one time
The one that never needs a smack
The one that lives in the crack.
between the limelight of the eldest
and The drama of the youngest..
The one that always gives in..
Can always be counted on to be good..
You’re the calm ..in the storm of parenthood..
Always ready with a long hug..
So....I know you’re underappreciated
I know you don’t ever end up with the biggest portion
If any at all
I know your wisdom gets shouted out by your older sibling
Your charm gets snatched up by the baby
But you’re the one that keeps us all sane
The big wide umbrella in the rain
And some day you’re going to make a wife and children very very happy
This is to you...my dear Middle Child
