Dear Santa....

I know it seems a little early, but my kids have been working on their wish lists for some time, so I figure, why not?

I know I should ask for world peace and food for the starving kids in Africa.
I know I should ask for love among my brothers and sisters (and a hammer, probably showing my age there).

But I'm all about keeping it "real" these days.

So,

for Christmas I would like,

A Family Celebration of Christ free from arguments, strife, and guilt.
5 more hours in every day
A housekeeper
A landscaper
A personal chef
A live-in babysitter (well, I do have an 11 year old who is good for short stints).
A dumpster
A weekly date night with hubby
NO MORE TOYS!

If you can't deliver, don't bother stopping at this house.....

What a great list! When Big Sis got old enough to babysit life was grand!!! We still pay her so it isn't cheaper, but there is no calling around and all that jazz!!!

Melinda said...

Weekly date night ... that's on my list, too!

Christian Mommy Writer said...

Amen to your list!

I was smiling and nodding my head on just about all of these!

I love it! Hey Santa, if you're listening...just sign me up too.

Just found your blog and now am following. Love your name...daily venting is essential in this house -- help me keep the crazies at bay.
