Excuse This House

Some houses try to hide the fact that children shelter there.
Ours boasts of it quite openly, the signs of it are everywhere.
For smears are on the windows, little smudges on the door.
I should apologize, I guess for toys strewn on the floor.
But I sat down with the children and we played and laughed and read;
And if the doorknob doesn't shine, their eyes will shine instead.
For when at times I'm forced to choose the one job or the other;
I want to be a housewife, but first I'll be a Mother!
