Holiday Writing Contest- Self-Care Santa

Fitness Junkie

Unknown

The head elf called Santa on Christmas Day,

to make sure toy delivery all went ok.

“Mrs. C and I are out of reach; we are treating ourselves to a month at the beach.”

Santa took the advice he had read in a letter.

“Taking care of yourself always makes you feel better.”

He and the Mrs. packed up for a break.

A month long escape was not too long to take.

The first week they rested and napped in the sun.

They dipped toes in the ocean and had lots of fun.

Week two warm massages no more cold, ice, or snow.

“My body feels rested, Ho, Ho,

Ho, Ho,

Ho!”

Yoga on the beach was the theme of week three.

They stretched, yoga posed, and relaxed happily.

By the end of week four they were both filled with joy.

Ready and excited for building more toys.

  1. It sounds like Santa was taking full advantage of his vacation time. He should be all ready to deliver presents when the time comes. Great job with this piece!

  2. This is going to make all of the busy parents want to follow the same advice! 🙂 I especially liked (and wanted to mimic!) the lines:
    The first week they rested and napped in the sun.

    Best wishes to you in the contest!
