The kids woke up,
with excitement and cheer.
They’ve been waiting for this,
the entire long year.

They ran downstairs,
yelling out loud.
Chaos erupted,
which attracted a crowd.

Santa’s empty milk glass,
they simply ran by.
To their smiling parents,
they forgot to say hi.

Shiny gift wrappers were torn,
in all direction went flying.
The baby was confused,
which resulted in crying.

The parents were happy,
accepted the noise.
They were thrilled to watch,
their kids and their toys.

It was a wonderful morning,
the family spent time.
They shared simple acts of kindness,
just like this rhyme.
