A poem

Last night, Jaben and I were sitting in the living room (Kyan was in bed like a good little boy - yay Ky!). Jabe was messing around in his sketchbook and I thought he was drawing. He stood in front of the chair I was in and asked me if I wanted to hear the poem he just wrote, so of course I said sure. I loved this poem! It's pretty cute and not too bad for a 10-yr old, but the ending made me laugh out loud. It might not be as cute without Jaben reading it (you've got to hear the inflection in his voice), but here it is, posted with permission...

By Jaben

Sometimes school lunches are good
but sometimes it's gross
like uncooked bread with uncooked cheese inside.
And chili with rock beans in it.
Also, the corn dogs have real weiner dogs in it!
Lastly, the hot dog buns are made of wood.
So four days each month I pack for lunch!

I know, I know, it's not genious. But tell me that's not cute!!
