Christmas Cheer Is Not Here!!!

My life is going by to fast.
Where did all my little ones go?
No one believes in Santa ......except for the last........
And that's only for show!!!

My kids are spoiled
At times,even rotten
Oh what a coil...
Their to big to beat their bottom!!!!

I worry , I fret
I don't know what to get

The 16yr old wants a car.
The 12yr old wants to be a star
The 11yr old wants a horse
And the 9yr old wants everything of course!!!!

Remember the days when Christmas was new?
When you knew just what to do.

I remember the days when my babies were young
When Santa was real
And all the whistles and bells were rung
I knew how to just feel !!!

Find the perfect gift !!!!
I try
That's just a myth !!!
I cry

Brandy and egg nog , It's just what I need
A little bit of down time, just for me.
I'll read a book and drink a beer
I'll find that damn Holiday Cheer!!!!!

I believe that is the best poem I have ever heard! When you find that holiday cheer, be a doll and give me some directions to it??

I know, I know. I've been there. The good news is that it gets better as they do tend to grow up & leave home eventually, lol.

I am with BSM, who knew you were so poetic.
I took Diva shopping because remember I have no taste, now I just have to wrap it.
I am ready for some alcohol, hell with beer, now that school is out.

Wait for the part when you start buying less, because they are grown, then feel guilty the whole season, because you don't have 20 packages for each kid under the tree....OH, and since you have 4 kids...double that in the future and don;t forget to add grankids...ai yi yi...I miss my little kids!
