Joining Saturday Centus

Hello everyone! This week for Saturday Centus Mizz Jenny gave us the opportunity to write about a chair of our choice. We could use up to 100 words plus the prompt of the chair dominated the small room.
The Chair Dominated The Small Room
Maybe I shouldn't have ridden the broom,
All through the house until KABOOM.
Mom's not happy-she sure can fume,
Looks like my afternoon's filled with gloom.
As I stood fearing impending doom,
The chair dominated the small room.
But sit and recharge-I'll be free soon,
Then through the house again I'll ZOOM!

PS-can you tell I raised two sons?
Have a happy day:@)


  1. Haha! I love this! I could just envision the thinker here! Good job!

  2. Wonderful! Thanks for the smile this Saturday morning. Now I'm going to go running around like I'm riding my broom instead of sweeping with it - No time outs for meeeeeeee.

  3. This is great! Sounds just like my two boys...and my two girls! What fun! Thanks for a great Saturday morning chuckle!

  4. It's great! I can relate to this and raising 2 sons!

  5. This is quite good and such a creative response to our prompt...peace and blessings

  6. What a fun response! Yes... that dreaded 'time out' chair!
    Some times I treat 'my' chair like a time out chair.... a time out from life!

  7. I reared two boys as well,and your Centus truly captures little boys!!

  8. Nicely done! I could feel those two little boys running around your house!! Hope all is well! xxoo

  9. So funny and cute too! I really like that timeout chair...too cute!

  10. As the mother of three boys (and one tomboy) of my own, I got a kick out of this.

    Well done!


  11. My time-out chair is my recliner, and I go there very, very willingly!!!

  12. Too funny. And something close to my heart - I have 4 boys and 1 opinionated, stubborn daughter :-)

  13. Ha ha! I've got 6 of those zoomers. Too many names to remember when you're trying to yell at them.~Ames

  14. Hi Lynn,
    this is very cute!


  15. I sat and sat
    And thought and thought
    Why can't I behave
    Like I ought?

    Being good
    Is just no fun
    Who wants to walk
    More fun to run!

    Things just seem
    To get in my way
    So I guess in this chair
    I am doomed to stay!

    Loved you zooming broom. Don't be sure it is just boys, I am the youngest of 4 girls, and my mom chased us with a broom many a day!

  16. Hi Lynn, yes, any mother of a boy gets your poem! My favorite chair is one my son made in shop class in 7th grade. It doesn't go with anything, and I'm not sure it's safe to sit on, but I would never part with it! Linda

  17. LOL! My boys weren't very repentant after time out either ;)

    Nice job! :) And thanks for coming by and visiting my blog earlier.


  18. So cute! and yes, I understand - I have a son too and I remember those days well, so ............ much energy!

  19. Lynn~ I can always count on a smile from you! Enjoy your Sunday :)

  20. I also raised two sons, I could so so so relate to your post. Great job!! (While I miss my little boys, I anxiously await becoming a grandma so that I can sit back and laugh).

  21. Very nice poem. :) It helps when you've been there done that. I like your chair find picture too.

  22. Loved the quirky little poem, and yes, i can tall you've raised two boys - though girls can get just as rambunctious at times!

  23. That was adorable, I loved it!

  24. I just finished mine. Had not read any and we have the same theme, although I like yours much better.

  25. Oh yes...I remember those days!

  26. This was so cute! It reminded me of Dr. Seuss!

    What a clever girl you are!

    Loved this!


Thanks for stopping by!
