A mother’s Christmas wish



If you could ask Santa for anything, what would it be?


Christmas wish



A mother’s Christmas wish

Caring and sharing not just for a day.

But a whole season through, please,

well… at least until May?


Happy bright faces all smiling with cheer,

knowing that Santa will soon be right here.


Racing to get dressed, all on their own!

No fashionista’s having a moan.


Inside voices, oh what a treat.

No shrieking or squeaking,

that would be neat!


Some helpful hands, to kindly pick up,

all of those toys scattered over the rug.


The beta to step up and play their A game,

so mummy can sit,

to recharge her brain.


Much love, a big sprinkle,

now we’re ready to go.


A very merry Christmas to all,

now all we need is some…





Christmas wish

    I love it! Yes, picking up toys would be nice, and getting dressed quickly without the “I don’t want to wear this”, ” I don’t like that” (at 4 years old going on 14!). Have a wonderful Christmas with or without snow! #dreamteam

    Totally love this Annette. Fab as always. I totally wish for these things too… #DreamTeam
