I can't believe I didn't make my bed.

I always try to do what Mama said.

But then again, what really will it matter -- if

I ... EAT ... dress ... brush ... run ... play ...
EAT ... read ... swim ... change ... play ...
EAT ... talk ... tease ... bathe ... dress ...

and finally ...

fall right back on that pillow with my head?!

cute and nice. who did you tease i wonder. it was unclear to me if you are writing this "totally in the past/in childhood" or are you beginning your poem in the present: did you NOT make your bed one day in adulthood and that made you think about childhood when you "always" made your bed? it sounds like you were too busy as a child to take time to make your bed. and why would any kid want to make their bed when he/she is just going to have to unmake it at bedtime!!!
