Twas a peaceful night and all through the house,
Not a child was stirring, not even a spouse.
I was up late, getting ready for bed.
That’s when it started, a commotion from my redhead.
She was so ill…needed to throw up.
I gave her a cuddle, a bowl, then a drink from a cup.
Calm again was my home and that’s when I heard,
My toddler start wailing. He was backed up–oh my word!
Finally, fast asleep we all fell.
And then my other son awoke with a YELL.
His overnight diaper just wasn’t in place.
His bedding was soaked. He had a sad face.
Back to bed, I sat up to an “ahhhh!”
A scary dream from my oldest. She wanted her ma.
You may be wondering, where was my husband when all this went down?
Snoring away. He didn’t hear a sound.
A true story from this past Friday night.
As for my better half. We’re good friends again.
After my long night, he let me sleep in.
