Twas The Night Before Christmas....Mom Style

I just received this & wanted to share!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!


Twas The Night Before Christmas....Mom Style

Twas the night before Christmas, when all thru the abode Only one creature was stirring, & she was cleaning the commode.

The children were finally sleeping, all snug in their beds, While visions of Hot Wheels & 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 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 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 .... you get the picture. So stop for a moment and hug that little one that is so special, whether he/she is 2 or 22, child or grandchild, or perhaps even someone who is in a different category. They all are gifts that God put us your life ... and such a gift should always be treasured.

So, why not send this on to the all the Mom's you know, for they will no doubt need this at this time of year. "Make yourself necessary to somebody"
