T'was the Week Before Christmas

Where has the time gone? It has been months since my last blog post. And this is hardly the time for me to sit down and start grinding out any of the dozens of blog ideas that have been swirling about my sleep-deprived mommy brain. So I am reposting my ode to holiday spirit that I penned last year, right around this time. I am not surprised to note that it is just about as accurate to this year's preparations as last.

I wish all of you of a wonderful holiday season, a very happy new year and most importantly -a full recovery from the "most. wonderful. time. of. the. year!"

T'was the week before Christmas

T'was the week before Christmas and all through the house,
The kids weren't behaving nor was my spouse.

Their stockings, their jackets, nothing hung in its place.
They left crumbs on the floor and left jam on their face.

A week's worth of dishes were used in a day
And left in the sink for mom to put away.

The holiday baking didn't come out quite right
And the wrapping of presents turned into a fight.

A phone call to Santa was threatened at least once,
But that had grown old since we'd used it for months.

But the countdown is on and we will be merry,
We may even get a visit from the Tooth Fairy!

I'll hear them proclaim, as I kiss them good night,
I love you, Mommy and that makes it all right.


  1. Very sweet. Thanks for reposting it.

  2. I've been wondering how you are. :)
    Happy Holidays!
