A Limerick a Day – Day 4 – If the Shoe Doesn’t Fit…


I’m pretty sure this won’t be news to any moms out there, but scientists have now confirmed that a woman’s feet grow larger as a result of pregnancy.

It appears that fallen arches and a higher risk of arthritis are also unfortunate byproducts of carrying our beautiful bundles o’ joy.

Rather than dwell on these things, though, I prefer to embrace the silver lining…


If the Shoe Doesn’t Fit…

Sure, moms’ bodies endure some abuse,
But you won’t hear us singing the blues.

Not at all—let feet grow
With the rest, head to toe —
Just another excuse for new shoes!
