An Open Letter to Santa Claus

Dear Santa,

I realize that your probably busy getting ready for the BIG trip around the world tonight but I wanted to add a few last minute items to my list.

Admittedly, they aren't all for me and some of them may require that you pull in some additional assistance from other magical creatures including the Easter Bunny and the Toothfairy.

To quote a song, here is my grown-up Christmas list.

A big bag full of cures: Please include cures for Diabetes, Cancer and ALS, but do not feel like you can't throw in some additional one. In fact, a universal cure would be most appreciated.

More involved grandparents: Can you send a wake up call to both my mom and my dad about quality time. Please include directions to my house and a school calendar highlighting all the activities the kids will be participating in.

That everyone is blessed with friends like mine I've said it before and I'll say it again: A strong group of women (who don't tear each other down) is better than any type of therapy.

Extra patience: I really need to yell at my kids less. Between you and I, I think it's their fault because they don't listen, but really I'm kind of "snappy". If you can bring me some patience wrapped in a box with a big red bow that would be greatly appreciated.

That about sum's it up. Feel free to toss in some craft supplies. You know how much I love those.

Your number one fan,


P.S. Merry Christmas Bloggyland. I hope you get everything on your list!
