‘Twas the Week Before Christmas

 twas the week before chrsitmas(Pictures are of this lovely village…the only peaceful looking part of my house right now)

‘Twas the week before Christmas, when all the through house

Rotavirus was stirring, only worse was if we had to also delouse
(non-parents, feel free to google “rotavirus” and “delouse”…good stuff)

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care

At least the house had been decorated but no gifts yet there


The children were nestled all snug by the porcelain bowl

With visions of Gatorade, as the virus took its toll

And mamma unshowered walking around with Lysol

Would love to settle down and actually sleep come nightfall


But all will get better, if only Pedialyte was drinkable

Thanks to Amazon and Fed-Ex, the Monroe household is unsinkable

The cards will get out, the cookies will get made…all you moms know what I mean

So Happy Christmas to all and see you on the web in 2014!!
