A Mother's Christmas Wish

Santa, dear Santa,
so jolly and nimble!
Don't bring me a gift;
just help me assemble!

Come in from the cold.
Come out of the weather.
Come in; I've got cookies -
help me put this together!

For Words Count with Real Toads

manicddaily said...

Ha! A lot of fun. k.

Fireblossom said...

Ha! You can do it, MZ! This made me laugh.

Shawna said...

Amen to that. :)

And if you want to go deeper, you could say that you need help assembling yourself, as well as whatever "this" may represent (a relationship, a problem, etc.).

So cute. My daughter is an adult now, but I sure remember the days when Christmas Eve was sleepless due to all the assembly required for her toys. Good luck. Hope Santa does help you out.

Poet Laundry said...

Ha! And help with those little twisty plastic/wire things they put on every toy as if they're locking up Fort Knox too...great write and prompt MZ.

Heaven said...

I am loving the tongue in cheek responses to your prompt--like yours. Excellent prompt by the way.

Bodhirose said...

How cute! I remember those long nights of assembling toys for my two into the wee hours.

Sioux said...

Mama Zen--Thank goodness I'm past that phase where the phrase "some assembly required" made me shudder.

Lady In Read said...

J Cosmo Newbery said...

It's a fair request...

hedgewitch said...

Gah! The worst nightmare of Christmas--sometimes just getting it out of the package without a machete and flamethrower seems impossible.

Helen said...

Marian said...

Scott said...

The responsibility of Mothers. Lovers. It never ends, The idea of a friend just chilling with you. Santa is cool.

pandamoniumcat said...

Oh yes...I do remember those days...thank goodness they're over...or at least I think they're over now it's trying to get the xbox to connect!

Lolamouse said...

Help?!! That's too much to wish for!

razzamadazzle said...

Haha! I love it. It reminds me of the late night we spent trying to put together a swing set for my nephew's birthday.

Sneha said...

Awww... you remind me of my mommy whose only idea of a gift was help!
And we never got it back then how a person couldn't want a gift!
This made me smile.. thank you.
