Ode To My Work Wife

Mel oh Mel, inventor extraordinaire.
Without you, LolliDoo would be just a prayer.
Mel oh Mel, you really came through.
When I asked you to sew a diaper or two.

Melissa you absolutely ooze with style.
I expected an inch and you ran the whole mile.
You sew, plan, proofread and write patents too.
Dig on what a phenomenal woman are you!

Thank you, thank you Mel, for all your hard work.
And for dealing with me when I’ve been a jerk.
I feel so blessed to have you in my life,
And I’m not embarrassed to say it, “I love you Work Wife”.

Oh MY! Now that's SOMETHIN'! lol!

ALI!!!! :)

I don't recall you ever being a jerk. And you put up with me when *I've* been a turd! (I just HAD to use the word "turd".)

You're so smart and so creative...and so freaking organized I can't hardly stand it! You put up with me when my desk's piled high with LAST month's mail, when I tell you I have to dig out bank statements that are still in their envelopes; you have so much patience when it takes me MONTHS to come up with a certain new change or feature to the diaper...when we were in a mad scramble to get to the Expo.

YOU are the one who deserves an Ode,
If only my thesaurus weren't so old
and outdated and contained more words
so I could adequately portray MY love
without them sounding like a pile of turds.

I'm off now, to work on LolliDoo for YOU,
I hope Carl will work to watch kids while I'm upstairs
After he cleans up the yogurt turned into goo
in Melody's hair.

Wow, it's getting pretty thick in here... ;-)

I couldn't agree more with both of you, though - you're BOTH amazing women who blow me away, and I can't wait to get my hands on the awesomeness you've created that is Lollidoo!
