I wanted to keep this here for my own memory’s sake
It’s just a little song I wrote and sent to my family after a night of a strange sickness that stopped by.
Here’s a little song that HAS BECOME FAMOUS overnight. In our house, anyway.
To the tune of Deck the Halls…
Here we go:
Hark, the sound of children puking
Just when mommy’s started sleeping
First the one, and then his brother
All over the sheets and covers
All done now, go back to bed
Ease your pillow under your head
Close your eyes, and warm your toesies (skip the next Falalalala….)
What’s that now–it’s a third go-around!!
Jump up quick and pinch your nosies
Now the worst is surely over.
Snuggle up, and move the cat over
Start to dream,
What’s that–more hurling sounds!
One more time, trudge to the bathroom
Lest you think that I am joking
Come on now and do your own poking
Into my great, big,huge laundry pile
Filled with ducks, and pillows and monkeys
More verses could be added, but I’ve already indulged my creative talents enough for today. You should know that everybody’s “fine”. Both boys involved in the aforementioned ditty declared themselves “fine” immediately before and after the said episodes. One boy even looked up from his puking and said, “Mom, I don’t know why I’m doing this–I feel just normal.”
I would have felt just normal too, if I’d have been curled up in my bed sleeping. 😌 But, since I spent my night dashing through the halls (oooh, I think I feel another song coming on), you get to experience the joy of me on sleep deprivation, responding to the songs that pop into my tired little brain. 🎶
Have a good day. I’m doing laundry.
