A Few Nights Before Christmas

Twas a few nights before Christmas 
when all through our house
Every person was puking 
With the flu no doubt
The laundry is piling up ever so high
and although I am exhausted
I am not getting any shut eye
It started with one as I heard the disturbance
I sprang from my bed to see this occurrence
It's happened before this ugly old bug
So I went to my duties without even a shrug
Changing  sheets, blankets, and clothes
These are the nights every parent soon knows
Each child has a bowl now and will until morning
Be puking and praying without any snoring
My eyes are getting sleepy, I would like to retire
But wait I must again go put out another puke fire.
So as you snuggle close so warm in your bed
Be thankful it's not your house, this house of dread
Don't mean to be a Bah hum bug as I sign off for the night
But
Merry Puking Christmas to all and To all (BUT me) 
A Good Night!!

Yes, Laura all parties are off until further notice. What a bummer huh!!
They are all resting and ate some dry cereal this morning we shall see how that goes.
Jen- I am glad you got a good laugh. That's why I posted it because if I didn't laugh about it I would be crying. SO gross!!
