Happy Christmas

Twelve bags of trash
Eleven electronic toys
Ten packs of batteries
Nine nervous breakdowns
Eight boxes of Kleenex
Seven cups of tea
Six lost receipts
Five cozy fleece
Four fighting children
Three tissue sneezes
Two aching boobs
And a rapidly escalating fever.

Dear Santa,
Next year, I don't want mastitis for Christmas. I'd rather get a mop.
Thank you,

I hope everyone had a healthy, happy Christmas!

If not a mother... said...

Ack on the mastitis!!!

but I hope the kids enjoyed their Christmas!

I have NFI what that is--no need to explain, thanks!--but it sounds awful.

Otherwise, I hope your Christmas went off swimmingly.

I have only a slight idea what that is, and I don't think I want to google it... suffice it to say, hope that other than sore boobs, your Christmas is merry.

I hope the mastitis cleared up! Been there and it's not fun at all!
