Another year of Haiku about my kids

Every night, since before my son was born, I write a haiku about my kids. I posted a collection of the first year of haiku in 2017 and was remiss in not having posted the collection of the second and third years. Here’s the second year. 365 haiku posted every night so I could feel like I was achieving Minimum Viable Creativity. If you like the haiku, or haidads, consider checking out the children’s book I wrote with my friend Chris Piascik, The Salty Avocado.

To leave for school way before

Oreos to school, but she
Hasn’t tried them yet.

From what we do to
A large pizza, I know that
There are four of us.

Wow. Snow days are not
At all as fun as they were
A few years ago.

For the second time
In two days, we watched Finding
Dory. We love it.
2/11/17
Middle of the night
Poops two nights in a row make
Us the luckiest.
2/12/17
A sense of calmness
Washed over me when I heard
Daycare was open.
2/13/17
The joke was on us,
Daycare was open but the
Boy had a sick day.
