a family of four

when life gets a bit crazy

small poems see me through


Hi there,

This blog is operated by me, April Derksen. I started this blog after a hilarious day of documenting small moments of my family’s life with a few haiku on my Instagram Story.

I loved it so much I decided to run with it and use these small poems as a launch pad to begin blogging again.

I am a stay-at-home mom with two beautiful children & a loving husband. Life with them inspire the haiku on our Instagram and Twitter, and some of those haiku inspire the longer posts you’ll find here!

Thanks for stopping by!
