Twas the night before Christmas and all 'cross the map, there lay sink-fulls of dishes and presents to wrap.
We had dinner with Grandma, there was no time to text, I listened with awe to hear what she'd say next.
Lights hung on the house and the basement demolished, I'm glad that for this week, all work is abolished.
I'll sleep through the night without making a peep, then wake up at five and watch Sesame Street.
There'll be candy and toys and maybe a ball - of the kids that I know, I'm the luckiest of all.
Thank you for Christmas, we think it's the best - gee, Mommy and Daddy sure could use a rest.
