How do I keep calm? (An attempt at poetry about my feelings)

How do I keep calm? When he wakes up and cries and scratches my back and wants me to hold him The feelings are right The moment is wrong I have work to do, people to make ready, chores to finish I have places to go and I am falling back on the clock How do I keep calm?   How do I keep calm? When I have cooked and cooked Every recipe on the books All he wants is mac n cheese And for me to let him off the hook The feelings are right The moment is wrong How do I keep calm?   How do I keep calm? I spent all day playing superheroes and firemen I spent all day reading books and blowing bubbles I want to breathe, I want my space All he wants though is to have more play The feelings are right The moment is wrong How do I keep calm?   How do I keep calm? He is crying on the flight The staring eyes at me with all the might I cannot hold him as the attendant gives me fright. I pray , I cry, my lenses are now misplaced The feelings are right The moment is wrong How do I keep calm?   How do I keep calm? I leave him in the morning He sees me at night The days are long The years are short I love him no matter what The feeling is right The moment is wrong How do I keep calm?

The concept of Collection and Migration is so clear after reading this blog. Sublime Reflection :  Kimberly has a blog post with pictures on different weekly layouts she has tried.

Her layout suggestions are quite good! She also has a great post on ideas of goal tracking that you can see here Christina77star : Another blog that laysout 25 ideas on how to layout weekly BUJO!
