T’was the night before my Christmas
and all through my house
both children were quiet
just like a mouse.
With me in my jammies and Sarah on couch
I sat at my computer and started to slouch,
when down came the stairs with a whine and “What’s a matter?”
A child did come and excitedly did chatter
I can’t sleep I can’t sleep they both did exclaim!
but off to bed they soon went with threats of butt pain.
We got through the day with nary a scream or a fight
and now to all of you I say,
Merry Christmas and goodnight!
