When I'm an old lady!!

I saw this in a newsletter yesterday and had to share it.  I sent it to my kids but had no reply.. ???? they're probably thinking I wrote it!!
 
When I'm an old lady, I'll live with each kid,
And bring so much happiness... just as they did.
I want to pay back all they joy they provided
Returning each deed!.  Oh they'll be excited!
 
I'll write on the walls with red, white and blue,
and I'll bounce on the furniture... wearing my shoes..
I'll drink from the bottle and then leave it out.
I'll stuff all the toilets.. hehe how they will shout!
 
When they're on the phone and just out of reach,
I'll get into things like sugar and bleach.
Oh they'll snap their fingers and shake their head,
(When I'm an old lady and live with my kids).
 
When they cook dinner and call me to eat,
I'll not eat my green beans or salad or meat.
I'll gag on my weetbix, spill milk on the table
And when they get angry.. I'll run....if I'm able!
 
I'll sit close to the TV, through the channels I'll flick
I'll cross both my eyes to see if they stick.
I'll take off my socks and throw one away,
And play in the mud till the end of the day!
 
And later in bed, I'll lay back and sigh,
I'll thank God in prayer and then close my eyes
My kids will look down with a smile slowly creeping,
And say with a groan "She's so sweet when she's sleeping"!!
