Merry SITSmas

My dream was to sit at my computer all day on the Merry SITSmas Blogathon posting away. But that was only a dream...
(cool shades dude!)

The morning was filled with an eye doctor appointment for Ross it would seem.

A Starbucks run soon was in order.

And Mommy's sanity was too on the border.

But when I came home I came upon this:

The living room was somewhat amiss.

But I changed a few diapers, and lunch was done.

The garland lays on the staircase waiting to be hung.

Three loads of laundry waits to be folded.

And a baby wants to be holded.

But Mommy's busy, can't you see?
Mommy wants to be commenter #3.

Merry SITSmas!

I love your poem, Merry SITSmas and congrats on being saucy!

Kristin said...

Hey, a rhyming post! Wasn't it fun to do?? Sometimes I have to stop myself from doing rhymes now. I guess my Thanksgiving poems stuck a bit too much in my brain!!

You do need a big cup of something. Or put something in your big cup of Starbucks. :-)

Denise said...

Kristin, I didn't start off rhyming but the end started to rhyme so then I went back and made the rest of it rhyme. The timing it totally off in parts but I was trying to get it up quick to get my 10 extra entries for the BIG PRIZE!

Idabel Oklahoma said...

3 loads of laundry! You only have three loads of laundry! Please, tell us how you got down to 3 loads of laundry. None of us can even get down to 5.

Denise said...

Idabel Oklahoma, my usual laundry load threshold is 5-6. I had my family over at my house on Saturday so I actually folded the laundry instead of hiding it. Don't worry, there was 2 loads in the laundry room still "in process."

MammaDucky said...

Merry SITSmas to you too! Thanks for stopping by! I bow down to your Mommy greatness! 6 kids! Wow!

Sturgmom said...

Merry SITSmas! Your children are beautiful!! And I'm SO glad I'm not the only one who piles the laundry expecting it to fold itself! LOL!

Letti said...

Merry SITSmas! I loved your little jingle very clever.
