Twas the Night After Christmas

So, a couple of nights after Christmas, I suddenly realized that I had been watching TV uninterrupted for over an hour. And it wasn't Sesame Street or SpongeBob!

Now, this is an unheard of event in my house! It was a big deal!

I was so inspired by this rare occurrence, that I started writing about it. And here is what I came up with!

I think most Mamas can relate. Hope you enjoy it!

Twas the night after Christmas and all through the South...
Not a single kid was crying or fighting, not one opened their mouth.

All of their gifts were scattered across the room and the floor... 
The room that was so clean and so bright just hours before.

Before the chaos, the frantic hurry, or the immediate joy...
Of finding the one, the only, that just perfect special toy.

Yes, the special toy that turns little woes into merriment...
That special toy that the oh, so smart Santa sent.

The toy that turns frowns into smiles and stops that annoying whine...
The toy that allows Mama a moment to herself and that oh glorious glass of wine!

Santa hit the jackpot with his attentive selection this year...
And Mama can watch just a little TV and actually hear!

Although it won't last, the calm will slowly fade away...

But until then, this Mama is going to enjoy the quiet of this special day.

So, am I right? Can you relate?
