DoOdADs: The Dreaded Words

The Dreaded Words

“First one in bed gets the first tuck-in!”

At those words my heart would pound,
I would not hear another sound.
It’s my turn to get the first kiss tonight,
First Mom will turn on my night-light.
I’d run up stairs and down the hall,
Only to hear my sister call:

“I’m in bed first!”

So close to bed my heart did sink,
As all my hopes went down the drink.
I’m always last to get tucked in,
But I was sure tonight that I would win.
Then as Mom leaned near my bed
She whispered, “You get two kisses instead.”
