Goodnight Tween

We are away this week, enjoying a final family vacation before it all begins again. Five days on the coast of Maine. No cell phones, no email, no texting. Heaven!

So, I thought I'd entertain you with that timeless childhood classic, Goodnight Moon, reinterpreted for a ... well ... more complicated age.


Goodnight Tween

In the great blue room, there was a tired tween
Who had just made a scene
And a picture of ...
Karen O'Connor, Olympian queen
And there were three CDs
And countless tees
And ribbons of blue
And a random shoe
And leftover lunch that was turning to mush
And a quiet old mother who was whispering "hush"
Goodnight tween
Goodnight scene
Goodnight disagreement that led to the scene
Goodnight laptop
And Abercrombie jeans
Goodnight tees
Goodnight CDs
Goodnight blue
And goodnight shoe
Goodnight lunch that's definitely mush
And goodnight to the old mother now hollering "HUSH!!!!"
Goodnight stars
Goodnight air
Goodnight BFFs everywhere
