Happy Mermaid Mother's Day

Today 
is my favorite 
day of the year.
 because
March 19th 
is
 Mermaid's birthday
and
the day
 I became 
a
 Mama



                          

When Mermaid was little
people would say to Blowfish
"Your wife is a fool about that child!"
Blowfish 
would nod his agreement
and 
smile




When Mermaid and I started our days
at the beach before school
the teachers would say,
" You are a fool about that child!"
I would smile
 nodding
 my agreement




When Mermaid had to have a horse
My Dad said to me,
" Heh! You are a fool about that child !"
I would smile 
and
 nod in agreement
before saying,
" Maybe a fool about that horse too."



When 
Mermaid and I 
went adventuring together
strangers would say,
" You sure are a fool for that child!"
 They would all be smiling
never
 frowning

When Mermaid grew her hair
longer than long
sporting
wind tangled curls 
my siblings would say,
" Do something with that hair !"
 I would reply,
" I love her hair !"



When the day came
for 
Mermaid 
to leave home
I hugged her tight 
and 
whispered
" Be joyful"



Joy 
to the world!
Joy
 for the Fishy's
In the deep blue sea
Joy!
For me and you.


PS

Yes!
I remain 
 a
fool 
about 
our
beloved
fabulous
joyful
Mermaid.
