Ode to Technology

Oh technology, what can I say to thee. Without you, I have no idea what would transpire. From my iPhone to computer to smart TV. Thanks to you, I can be the mom my family requires.

Oh technology, what can I say to thee
Without you, I have no idea what would transpire
From my iphone to computer to smart TV
Thanks to you, I can be the mom my family requires

Technology who art so relaxing
When you are on there is not a sound
You make it so my kids aren't so taxing
What would I do without you around

You mesmerize them with your power
And give me the break that I need
Just so I can make dinner in an hour
Or simply pee without having to breastfeed

When there are piles of laundry, dishes and things to clean
You are what I turn to so I can avoid the mess
I sit on my throne by the tv pretending to be a queen
And for the moment, it all seems to matter less

Playdates, school activities and doctor appointments abound
I am suffering from mom brain and I find it hard to cope
Then the lists, emails and phone calls that constantly hound
Without my iphone, there wouldn't be an ounce of hope

I am in need of more adult conversations
So I look to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon to be my sitter
I don't care if people make their insinuations
I needed that 20 mins on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter

At night, we share tears and laughter
Plus you respond to my every touch
And I often get a special package days after
Although, I don't think my husband likes that so much

Do not listen to the naysayers that condemn you
They know not what they say
For they will realize the hate that they spew
Will come and bite them in the ass one day

Oh technology, be with me forever
I will admit that too much of anything just won't do
But you are often the thing that holds my sanity together
And for that, I will never bid you adieu
