Default A mother Christmas poem

Twas the Mother's Night before Christmas
Twas the night before Christmas, when all thru the abode Only one creature was stirring, and she was cleaning the commode.

The children were finally sleeping, all snug in their beds, while visions of PlayStation & Barbie, flipped through their heads.

The dad was snoring in front of the TV, with a half-constructed bicycle propped on his Knee.

So only the mom heard the reindeer hooves clatter, which made her sigh, "Now What is the matter?"

With the toilet bowl brush still clutched in her hand, she descended the stairs, & saw the old man.

He was covered with Ashes & soot, which fell with a shrug, "Oh great," muttered the mom, "Now I have to clean the rug."

"Ho Ho Ho!" cried Santa, "I'm glad you're awake."

"Your gift was especially difficult to make." "Thanks, santa, but all I want is time alone." "Exactly!" he chuckled, "So, I've made you a clone."

"A clone?" she muttered, "What good is that?" "Run along, Santa, I've no time for chit chat."

Then out walked the clone - The mother's twin, same hair, same eyes, same double chin.

"She'll cook, she'll dust, she'll mop every mess. You'll relax, take it easy, watch The Young & the Restless."

"Fantastic!" the mom cheered. "My dream has come true!" "I'll shop, I'll read, I'll sleep a night through!"

From the room above, the youngest did fret. "Mommy?! Come quickly, I'm scared & I'm wet."

The clone replied, "I'm coming, sweetheart."

"Hey," the mom smiled, She sure knows her part."

The clone changed the small one & hummed her a tune, as she bundled the child in a blanket cocoon.

"You're the best mommy ever. I really love you."

The clone smiled & sighed, "And I love you, too."

The mom frowned & said, "Sorry, Santa, no deal."

That's my child's LOVE she is trying to steal."

Smiling wisely Santa said, "To me it is clear, only one loving mother is needed here."

The mom kissed her child & tucked her in bed.

"Thank You, Santa, for clearing my head.

I sometimes forget, it won't be very long, when they'll be too old for my cradle & song."

The clock on the mantle began to chime. Santa whispered to the clone, "It works every time."

With the clone by his side Santa said "Goodnight. Merry Christmas, dear Mom, You will be all right."

Sometimes we need reminding of what life is all about.

Especially at times during the Holiday season, when all we =seem to do is clean and bake and shop and and and and and and and.... You get the picture, I'm sure.

So stop for a moment and hug that little one so special, whether he/she is 2 months or 22 years, or even older than that.

For they are the Gift that God gave us in life...and what a gift to be treasured, far above any other! May the real meaning of Thanksgiving and Christmas be with you all this year!

" HAVE A GREAT CHRISTMAS " =

What a cute poem. And I know exactly what it is saying. My "baby" is 24 and she has been hugged by her dad and I very recently!

BTW, she is begging to go with us to get the pup and we are trying to convince her to stay behind to take care of her full-sized Australian shepherd red-bi dog of seven years~!~
It's not working!!!
