My impressions of a day in the life . . .

of a traditional and modern mom and wife

She works three jobs to help make ends meet
And comes home falling off her feet
(One usually doesn’t have much say
On how much yeshiva tuition to pay)
She shops and cooks and cleans the house
Makes time to share a laugh with spouse
And helps the kids with work for school and college hunts, ‘cause she’s no fool
Yet carefully makes time each day
To stand before HaShem and pray
This is her choice, and true she’ll stay—
She wouldn’t have it any other way
With no other life way would she toy
‘Cause on the Derech she finds joy

I used to think I knew
what made a SuperJew

"The Derech": The Way or Path of Orthodox Judaism

Regarding your appreciation for poetry, allow me to recommend that you get a copy of 'Journey to the Heart'. I used to read it with my girls' high school class before learning. Some of it is really, really good.

Very accurate - and it's a lot of us dads too!

Mordechai, thanks for the recommendation.

Elie, I can certainly believe that much of what I wrote applies to frum fathers, as well.
