Back to School Tradition: An Ode to Back to School Eve


'Twas the night before start of school,
and all through the house,
my youngling was packing
as I yelled at my spouse.

The clean backpack was packed,
by the doorway with care,
with prayers that her day,
would not be a bear.

My child will be nested,
all snug in her bed,
Thank God for Melatonin-
to help rest her "off-schedule" head.

And I with my coffee,
'cause the night is still young,
It's the Fall blend from Starbucks,
so warm on my tongue.

Every year it's the same,
as we get a little older-
the school backpack getting heavier
for my little one to shoulder.

So after the supplies are labeled,
and lunches prepped correct,
the laundry is folded,
tomorrow's outfit perfect,

I sip my coffee in peace,
and make a mamma bear prayer,
in the quiet of night-
in my favorite chair.

Help my daughter be brave,
let her classmates be kind,
let her teachers be open,
to guide her creative mind.

Tomorrow we'll spring from our beds,
morning chaos will ensue,
but tonight in the quiet,
I have one wish for you.

May your child's day be bright,
with a year full of hope,
Happy Back to School Day to you-
with much coffee to help cope!
