A station wagon full of kids
Two car seats and child booster
They got up so early to pack
By the cockadoodle rooster

Crying fighting hissing moaning
From four corners of the car
And if he hears just one more time
The words “Daddy just how far”

Daddy likes to speed he does
Not afraid of the meany cops
How can he make good time he says
With blasted gotta pee pit stops

And then it rains he’s gotta slow
But the kids keep up their singing
With the rain pounding hard he hopes
No others will see him swinging

Thank goodness for Mommies I say
For when Daddies lose their cool
I don’t know the unspoken words
But I do know which one will rule

Dumped daddy sits in a puddle
Hoping they can hear his roaring
One last song as the car wheels off
A tune “It’s rain-ing it’s pour-ing”

Oh, my....you've got me laughing so hard with this one!     Oh, how you've brought back the memories...especially with those "With the rain pounding hard he hopes
No others will see him swinging" lines! Great work!

Walt~
Lots of memories came riding back on this one.

Many delightful trips with four rug-rats in tow ... singing, games, and the proverbial, 'How many more minutes ?'

Loved it .... and you will too !
LOL !

Here's a secret defense, walt... Don't tell anyone though, OK???

In my family, when the kids said "Are we there yet?"... The standard answer was "Halfway".... whether we'd just left or were about to arrive.. Geesh we spent a lot of time being just "Halfway" to everywhere...
