Dear Santa

Hi, Santa. 

It's me, Beth. 

I know you're really busy with all the "who's been naughty and who's been nice" business (and for the record I've been REALLY, REALLY NICE). I just wanted to drop you a little note to say, "What's up?" and give you my Christmas list this year. I know, I'm a little old (In fact, you might remember that my birthday is Christmas Eve. No? Oh, then I guess it was just those people who enjoyed giving me my birthday/Christmas present all rolled into one every year. My mistake.). Anyway, I thought I'd give it a go, since the boys were doing theirs. 

So, here goes:

- Earplugs, because that's what every parent of preschoolers needs when forced to drive a total of 24 hours in the car with said preschoolers to visit family for the holidays.
- Another set of earplugs, you know, in case I lose the first set or decide to share with the hubby (highly unlikely though).
- New knives, since my old ones are getting kind of dull, and I'm thinking I might need to gouge my eyes out in hopes that I won't have to see how much weight I've gained over the holidays from eating my mother's irresistible cooking.
- An easy bake oven, because I don't like my grown-up's not easy, and I think it might hate me.
- An endless supply of new sponges, because mine just get really gross really fast, and I can't ever seem to find one that doesn't smell.
- For Tyler to potty train himself. I know this is a long shot, but I figured I'd ask anyway.
- Some new underwear, since my dog seems to really enjoy chewing up EVERY PAIR I OWN.
- A new dog
- A pony (because I've never gotten one, even though I've asked for one EVERY SINGLE YEAR, SANTA.)

Well, I think that's it. Thanks, Santa.



  1. What a great list! Ditto on the earplugs!

    I hope the tree is crowded with everything your heart desires.

  2. Lol about the Easy Bake Oven. And I think I'm going to copy you and ask for my daughter to be potty trained, too :D

  3. lol, what is it with dogs and underwear? And I'm asking for the potty training thing for my son, too. Hope you get your pony! :)

  4. Very cute!

    And yes, we mustn't be caught without earplugs. I keep 'em on hand for migraine days, but they've been helpful many other times, too.

  5. That was super funny!! Thanks for a good laugh.

  6. Oooo! Oooo! I want a pony too! Do you think two would fit in his sleigh?

  7. How is it that you make me laugh so? :)
    I have one that shows little to no interest in potty training too. It's fun.

  8. What a fun post! Easy Bake many happy memories with mine and, years later, my daughters.

    No pony for me. I don't want to clean up after one. Can I ride yours? ;)

    I hope your b-day and Christmas are fabulous!

  9. Ah! As soon as I posted, I noticed I forgot an apostrophe in daughter's. Please excuse. :)

  10. I'm still chuckling. There must be something about dogs and underwear. Our dog has the same problem. I never got a pony either :(

  11. Heh-heh! I want a pony, too. A white one! And I think your little boy will potty train himself--I'm feeling it!

  12. That's a great list. I used to ask for Mary Poppins when the twins were between the ages of 1 and 6. Darn it all, I never got her. BUT! I did get earplugs...had to buy them myself, but I got them =).
    Thanks for the laugh (the Easy Bake Oven had me rolling).
