ode to sick kids...

i know it's not flashback friday anymore, but this old post from 2008 (unfortunately) is totally appropriate again this year :( have a laugh... it's better than cleaning up puke~

twas the week before Christmas,
when all through the house
children were vomiting out of their mouths.
Papaw was at his job,
while i hold the fort
these are the days it'd be easier to work.
fevers keep climbing
children are whining
haven't eaten all day there's no time for dining.
sheets in the washer,
cartoons all day,
who'd have thought i could miss all that rambunctious play.
one silver lining
there has to be one
with seven days until Christmas we soon shall be done.
