Here is my entry for the #KidLitVibes contest - my theme word was AWKWARD! (How perfect for me!)
That Awkward Moment When...
Mom, I have something to show you
I’ll tug on your pants ‘til you look
Your eyes won’t believe
This trick up my sleeve
And all of the practice it took!
It feels like you can’t even hear me
When your friends are around it’s the worst
Stop chatting away
And come watch me play!
If you don’t look I think I might burst
Mom, are you paying attention?
I’m tugging with all of my might!
What’s wrong with your ears?
I’ve been tugging for years!
Won’t you acknowledge my plight?
Mom, you will think it’s outstanding
This move I can do is the bomb!
Just wait ‘til you see
Pay attention to me!
EEK!— You’re not my mom!
