The 12 Days of Christmas For My Fellow Queens aka Moms of Boys


In the spirit of the holidays I have composed a little ditty for you, sung to the tune of The 12 Days of Christmas.  We will just start at the twelfth day; by the time you repeat the 'eight maids a-milking' part five times you want to stick a sharp candy cane in your eye.
On the twelfth day of Christmas, 
My sweet kid gave to me
 Twelve gummy bears, 
Eleven dead batteries, 
Ten asks for weapons, 
Nine coughs in my face, 
Eight screaming tantrums, 
Seven dripping mittens, 
Six fights with his brother, 
Five - water - balloons, (NOT IN THE HOUSE!!)
Four half-eaten cookies, 
Three evil grins, 
Two sugar highs,
 And a hug and kiss on Christmas morn!

Enjoy your friends and family. And remember what the Grinch learned, “Christmas Day will always be just as long as we have we.”

Linda,

I hope you might remember me. I'm Mary, Kelly and Margaret's daughter, who used to babysit your boys. Two days ago my husband and I went to an ultrasound for Baby #3 and found out it's ANOTHER BOY! And for the first time in years, I thought about "It's Good To Be The Queen." We have ages 2, 1, and due in November. Thank goodness I have a mom friend due with Boy #3/3 in July. We gotta start up a branch in the DC area!
