‘Twas the night before school and all through the house
the kiddies did rampage, ’til mom’s head was ‘ouch!’
She tucked them to bed then – Thing One and Thing Two,
‘Cause upon the morrow she knew what she’d do –
She’d take them to school then – a whole full-day’s worth!
And nothing would stop her! Nothing on Earth!
They’d had a good summer full of frolic and fun,
They’d roasted themselves on the beach in the sun!
They demolished their home in a frenzy of playin’
because that summer had a whole lot of rainin’
and indoors at that time was the best place to be,
flinging toys with abandon and shrieking out “WHEE!!!”
Yes, mommy was looking quite forward to rest,
and for that, we all know, full-day kindergarten’s BEST!!!
For all the mommies and daddies and other caregivers who have just started or are about to start a new school year – YOU MADE IT!!!! Congratulations!!!!
And for all of our dear children – Have a safe and happy school year!!!
