Santa is Coming, Except Well..There’sThis…

The presents are ready, 
All wrapped with such care, 
Hiding in my bedroom,
Just ready to share.
But you see there’s a problem, 
Bubby’s awake. 
He won’t go to bed, 
This stress I can’t take. 
I’ve explained that St. Nick,
Can’t show up at all. 
There will be no presents,
No Christmas at all. 
But Bubby doesn’t care, 
He’s not interested in sleep.
He took a 2 hour nap,
And now I just weep. 
What’s a momma to do,
With a stubborn little boy?
I’ve threatened and begged,
but he just doesn’t care, OY!
I want to have a nice Christmas,
but so far it’s been crazy.
I need to wake up early,
but I fear I’ll be lazy.
This Christmas has been insane,
and it’s not even here yet.
He needs to go to sleep,
But he’ll be up for hours I bet.
I need to stay up, 
And keep Christmas alive. 
But I’m tired and hoping,
Bubby takes five.
Here’s hoping you all have a very Merry Christmas,
and that you get some rest.
Merry Christmas to all,
And I wish you the best!
