…in the blink of an eye.

We were woken up bright and early,
The energy levels were high,               
Laughter and giggles filled the air,
…..It can change in the blink of an eye.

Breakfast was had, Minecraft put on,
I asked questions, I got a reply, 
Siblings playing nicely together,
…..It can change in the blink of an eye.

Time for a shower, arguments start,
Instructions given, then she complied,
Splashes and jumping in the suds on the floor,
….It can change in the blink of an eye.

Lunchtime was here, almost time to go out,
To visit a relatives new house nearby, 
All was calm, children ready to go,
….it can change in the blink of an eye

Socks were put on, the seam was not right,
Anxiety building, tempers running high,
The shoes were kicked off, refusing to go,
…..it can change in the blink of an eye.

The visit went well, behaviour was good,
A new house, no question of why,
A good look around, all quiet and calm,
…..it can change in the blink of an eye.

Time to go home, everyone tired,
Kisses and waving goodbye,
A ride in the car, the sky getting dark,
….it can change in the blink of an eye.

A way up the road, things start to go wrong,
Its been too hard, tempers start to fly,
The car in control of Mum who’s being hit,
…..it can change in the blink of an eye.

The change is too much, she just cannot cope,
The meltdown had been on stand by,   
Safe in our car, a place of her own,
…..it can change in the blink of an eye.

Back at our house, the children exhausted,
Relieved to be home, I let out a sigh,
The days can be so unpredictable,
It can change in the blink of an eye.
