Momma's Ode to the Day After Christmas

Twas the day after Christmas
and all through the day
we were all so very tired 
no one wanted to play

We sat in our pj's
and super-comfy blankets
watched movies and napped
and ate lots of cheese-its

No meals to be planned
no tables to set
no decorating to be done
no more gifts to get

We bask in the glow 
of the fun day before
of family and friends 
and yummy food galore

We thought of those 
who were not with us this year
and those far away 
whom we still hold very dear

This day is not productive 
nor is it meant to be
we are content to watch the lights
on yesterday’s Christmas tree

Life will crank back up
and tomorrow will come quick
so we sit on our butts
and another movie we will pick

And we exclaim to the kids 
as we drift off to bed
Enjoy your christmas gifts
but don't let them go to your head

From our family to yours
there is one more thing to say
relax and enjoy you and yours 

on this day after Christmas Day!
