Twas the Night Before Christmas...
when all through the house
EVERY creature is stirring,
even the mouse!
(we found Zhu Zhu pets; and they're kind of fun).
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
in hopes that St. Nicolas would soon be there.
Children should be snuggled all nestled in bed.
Instead they are wrestling, laughing, and shrieking,
all to my dread.
And there is no kerchief, there is no cap.
Just loads and loads of those twisty things
that need untwisting before I nap.
Waiting for clatter...to see what is the matter.
Lawn loaded with 4 bags of reindeer food from all of our brood.
Hoping Santa isn't too heavy to fit down the pipe...
the treadmill has dusts of every type.
Pray for some sleep before midnight
as our little ones are likely to rise
with boundless energy way before light.
Off to the basement to take a last peek
to see if I can find all the stuff from last week!
Merry Christmas to all and to all parents....a good hour's sleep!!!
