Friday Haiku / Groundhog Day

Haiku Friday

Around the corner…

I’m cold through and though.
Please, furry little groundhog,
Don’t see your shadow!

I live in PA and people make a huge deal out of Groundhog Day. This year, Puxsutawney is expecting 30,000 people since Groundhog Day falls on a Saturday (tomorrow, in case you don’t know!).

Do not stop toddler tantrums:
Paris study says


Okay, so this is a found haiku – I just finessed the headline. But isn’t it nice to know that temper tantrums really aren't a result of you NOT doing enough? Now you have a study to site to those perfect moms who give you the look as your child bangs his head on the grocery cart and screams because you won't let him nibble on your arm.

I knew about tomorrow. Phil better get on with the spring predictions or he may be a cooked groundhog.

And, I love the tantrum one. Ahh. Makes me feel better.
