Monday's Child..Waiting for Santa




Waiting for Santa

Staring out the window
Waiting patiently
Trying to see Santa
Just Jacob and me.

See...
Mum said if we are good
In fact, every girl and boy
Will get a visit from Santa
He'll even leave a toy!

all year we tried so hard
To do everything just right
Kept our bedroom tidy
Went to bed at night.

Helped Mum with the dishes
ate up all our tea
Were kind to one another
Tried as hard as can be.

So...
Dear Santa please hurry
Leave the gift under the tree
What present will you bring
For Jacob and me?

In our household of 6 children...I am a realist...christmas to my kids when they have been little was all about santa and presents...lol...the excitement of running to the tree in the morning and finding a gift...or twenty!!!! with their name on it...they know all the other stuff that goes with christmas now, but, you know i am sure....anticipation is such a wonderful thing to watch in your child christmas eve, and every year all my kids have looked to see if they can see rudolph's red nose in the sky....!!!so this photo reminded me of that...and these 2 look like twins so i wrote this poem from Maddie's point of view...
hope you like it...
until next time
lots of it
