I'm Not That Great

He stares with admiring, flirtatious eyes.
Doesn't he know?
I'm not that great?
I have a frumpy dumpy mommy bod,
Greasy hair.. I haven't showered for days,
(It hasn't even been styled since 2011.)
The laugh lines that used to only appear momentarily now linger indefinitely.

He shyly tosses glances watching my every move and is seemingly impressed by what he sees.
Doesn't he know?
I'm not that great!
Most of the time I am distracted and snappy with the kids,
I have way too many negative thoughts,
I didn't get all the dishes done...again
Dinner...what...already...Oh crud!  I forgot to thaw the meat!!!

He reaches out his arms to bring me close to him as if his life depended on it.
Doesn't he know?
I'm not that great.
I smell like spit up.
I'm in a bad mood.

But, he doesn't care, he just wants to be with me and sees nothing but the best. Maybe, I will try harder...
to be what he sees.


  1. Beautiful, Debi! You should submit this to a magazine or something. So well put!

  2. I adore this, Debi! We should all remember to think like that more often!

    And belated congratulations on the new baby... how wonderful! Glad you are healthy and back in blog world :)

  3. Beautifully written!
    I love seeing how much Luke adores me. It's flattering seeing someone so in love with me. (aside from my husband of course ;) )
    p.s. I think you are pretty great as well. :)
