Life around home / Thursday, December 21st, 2017

1. On the first day of vacation,

Mom, there’s cat poop all over the porch.

There’s cat poop all over the porch.

There’s cat poop all over the porch.

8. On the first day of vacation,

My child said to me

Baby’s not a-sleeping

Sister is a-whining

There’s cat poop all over the porch.

10. On the first day of vacation,

My child said to me

We don’t have any fun

Baby’s not a-sleeping

Sister is a-whining

Brother is a-teasing

I WANT A SNACK!

I need library books

My shoes stink

I thought it was just leaves and

There’s cat poop all over the porch.

 

11. On the first day of vacation,

My child said to me

OH. You mean those leaves? They were stuck to my farm boots and I tracked them onto the porch by mistake and then kicked them off there. Sorry they were loaded. I guess when the snow melted the cats found out that what you hide today comes back to haunt you tomorrow…

We don’t have any fun

When’s dinnertime?

Baby’s not a-sleeping

Sister is a-whining

Brother is a-teasing

I WANT A SNACK!

I need library books

My shoes stink

I thought it was just leaves and

There’s cat poop all over the porch.

 

12. On the first day of vacation,

I got in charge of me

I said if this is going to be so hard, I guess I’ll write my own theme music and

Start a-singing

Let’s have some fun

Dinner’s roasted turkey

Give up on the sleeping

Smile, no more whining

Stop all this teasing

YOU HAD A SNACK!

Here are brand new books

Scrub off your shoes

Guess you’ll know for next time and

Let’s dance on the freshly cleaned porch!


And that was only the first day, folks…

Haha, I love it! “Getting in charge of me” with a dash of humor…that crucial and difficult game changer

I love it! This Christmas has sort of been a Twelve Days theme, I keep hearing it everywhere, and many different versions. Yours is my favorite, hands down!
