Christmas glitter, In my hair,
On the chair, Everywhere.
Cookie crumbs and icing blobs
on the floor sweep some more.
Socks and mittens gone astray
Boots and gym shoes in the way.
Towels and wash cloths in the bath
Band aids for the aftermath.
Family room trashed; no one to blame
Pillows and tablets and video games
Gallons of milk and snacks devoured
Exhaustion creeps in after every hour.
Swim at the Y and bicycle rides
Climb to the haymow; explore outside.
Check the ice on the pond; Be Careful I shout-
I don’t really wish to fish you both out!
Pizza for dinner. View Christmas Lights.
Grandma is smiling. Time for goodnights!
Hugs and Kisses.
After they’re gone, that’s what Grandma misses.
