There is a distinct disadvantage to having everyone home for more than a week. The house looks like a hurricane hit it.
Legos and blocks, trains and books
New Christmas ornaments in every nook
Broken crayons, uncapped markers
DVDs. And Mom is starkers,
going nuts, surveying her house!
But Banshee Girl is quiet as a mouse
And Son is watching the Wiggles
and Baby Girl, she's got the giggles.
Hubs 's paying Zelda on the Wii
A more peaceful setting, never to see
During the rest of the year.
A mess is just a mere
price to see family, precious and dear.
