What would you do if you didn't have children...

What would you do if you didn’t have children?

What would you do if there were no kids?

Well, let me tell you

What we do since there are no children

What we do since there are no kids.

We dance in the kitchen to the tune of our own voice

We play train throughout the house – he’s the engine, I’m the caboose

We have dinner for two in the dining room

Or in front of the TV, where we watch old game shows

We have picnics in our backyard

We play croquet

And ride our bicycles

We put together puzzles

And play Scrabble and other word games

We take day trips and weekend trips and longer trips too

To northeast Missouri – LaGrange, Hannibal

To Clear Lake

And elsewhere as money comes and goes

We spend each anniversary at a Bed & Breakfast,

Sometimes fancy, sometimes plain

We plan surprises for each other

We talk back at our talking bird who only talks when we turn him on and that’s assuming the battery is fully charged

We enjoy our bunnies, one at a time

We especially enjoy BeeJay, who has just turned nine

We enjoy our friends

We host a Christmas Open House

We enjoy baking and cooking and eating and decorating

We like to shop for bargains for each other

We enjoy Bible study together and apart

We encourage each other

We tell each other, “You know what? What? I love you” Or

“Some bunny’s mommy loves some bunny’s papa daddy.”

We are silly.

We stand up for each other. We defend one another.

We believe in one another.

We have active imaginations.

We have children who are filled with stuffing, but have definite personalities.

We do much that you who have children do.

Alas, there is much we do not do. We miss much.

But we have each other, we love each other, we have the Lord and we love the Lord, and we are ever grateful for all He has given us.
