Hey Santa...it's me...Mama M.
I just thought that, you know, since Christmas is so close and all...that I'd write you my Christmas List.
I've been good Mama this year! I was patient (most of the time), and I didn't raise my voice (okay, well...sometimes I did...), and I never, ever wanted to sell my children (okay, well...I did. Want to, that is...I never actually sold them.).
I've made yummy meals (and a few yucky ones), and baked cookies (yes, it was last Christmas, but it still counts, right?)...I've been a good friend ('cept when I said I'd call and didn't, or forgotten birthdays...), and a good daughter (right mom? I have...right?), I've loved my husband and always make sure the house is clean when he comes home (*snort*...okay, you got me there...I lied.).
So, Santa...the only thing I want this year (besides a lifetime of health and happiness for my children, husband and family, and...well...world peace and an end to hunger...)...I'd like a housekeeper.
Or a cleaning fairy.
Either will do...I won't discriminate. Heck, you could even send me one of your elves, and I will welcome him or her with open arms.
I'd even take an Oompa Loompa.
You're the best!
