Dear Loving Husband,
So before you check our statement, please let me explain,
I had to buy a few small gifts, I haven’t gone insane.
Just some gestures, nothing crazy, to show our gratitude,
To a few nice people who touch the lives of our little brood.
Some little earrings for their teachers, and yes, they each have four,
Plus morning greeter, carline lady, and I think there was one more…..
A poinsettia for the principal even though we’ve never met.
Our baby hasn’t been sent to her, well, at least he hasn’t yet….
And just the basic Christmas bonus for the ones who work so hard,
So that explains the cash withdrawal on my debit card.
The mailman, and my hairdresser, and the guys who get our trash,
As a little thank you, I slipped each one some cash.
The sitter and their coaches and the Starbucks drive thru guy….
“Giving” is my middle name…..(now please don’t roll your eye).
If you are still reading and you’ve made it through this letter,
Don’t freak out just breathe deep, next year I’ll strive for better.
My love for you is larger than this rather hefty payment,
Remember that cause “Santa’s” bill is part of January’s statement.
Through good times and expensive ones,
Your Loving Wife
