A Sneak Peek
The kids had been awake since five o'clock
until six they gathered in the boys' room;
it was a chuckle that awakened me
or was that a squeak in the floor,
a little let's-get-a-sneak-peek-squeak?
I pop up and run out and whew... the coast is clear!
I decide to hurry up and turn the coffee pot on
since the deluge to begin needs caffeine squared
and the late night left me feeling like I need some.
That's when I see it, the bike standing there
(the last one I had he traded for a car and all I
really want is something to get around on)
I become a cheerleading mime, snap a picture
slap on the coffee then dive into bed with the kids
until he wakes up five minutes later
goes to see if Santa came.
