Santa, Baby

"Been an awful good girl, Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight." 


Dear Santa Claus,

I'm not complaining or anything, but I think I might deserve a little something nice in my stocking. I know you're probably too busy to run to Target or something, so I thought I'd cut down on your shopping time and give you my list.

1. I'd love to wake up on December 25th and be a size 6 again. That would be fab. Then I could wear my skinny jeans and actually be skinny.

2. A day of no whining-no hitting-no sass would be awesome.

3. A pool boy. With an accent. Who likes yard work. Can you have the elves put in a pool too?


4. A sound-proof craft room. 'Nuff said.


5. A week with Mary Poppins as our Nanny.


If anyone could get Michaela Byrd to eat, I bet it would be Mary. I'm sure she'd add a "spoonful of sugar" to those peas and carrots, but it would be worth it. While you're at it, Santa, please send Dick Van Dyke and the penguins. They'd be great entertainment for the kids while I lay out by my new pool.

6. A day at the spa.


And I don't just mean an hour-long massage either. I want a whole day where I can walk around in a bathrobe and be pampered and get a mud wrap and a milk bath and a massage and a pedicure and a manicure and a hair cut. That's not too much to ask.

So, that's my list Santa. If you can't make it happen, just send a Visa gift card. I'll make it work. I think this will make up for the trauma my children have inflicted on me in 2009. Don't make me call Mrs. Claus.

Merry Christmas!

  1. Big wide grin over this one........a girl DOES have to dream, yes?

    What would you like me to guest post about??? We could just trade posts???? Musical blogs??? :)

  2. Wow, that craft room is to die for!! I hope you get at least a few of the things on your list, moms certainly deserve it! : )

  3. That's so cute! I also have a 3 and a 1 year old, and a 7 yr. old too! I understand all about the writing on the floor and stuffing things in the toilet. Loved this post!

  4. This "Santa Baby" was recorded by Cynthia Basinet not Marilyn. Find her on iTunes.

  5. I love this list! I might add a couple of those items to my list, as well, but I'm not holding my breath on the hope that I'll get them! :)

  6. Sounds like a good list to me! Right now, I just hope we get our dining room painted by the time the kids arrive on Christmas day!


  7. maybe if you asked nicely, the elves could build you a spa slash sound proof craft room!?!

  8. First time I've visited your made me smile alot! Have a Merry Christmas!

  9. i LOVe reading your stuff, A. it's always so entertaining. you really have a way with words.

  10. Your list is hysterical and so is your Big Bird tweet. I want that craft room too.. swoon.

  11. I think I'll just copy your Christmas list and save myself the hassle of writing my own. Except I'll take a gardener instead of a pool boy, and I could go for a craft room, period, let alone a soundproof one. Oh, how I miss those days when craft supplies weren't stacked all over my bedroom.

    Now I have to go read the posts you linked, because I'm nodding along as I read, remembering the time a fit-throwing baby pushed down my shorts in Wal-Mart. Good times.

  12. Love the list...the spa day sounds superb! I also would love to wake up a size or two smaller on Christmas morning or any morning actually. The craft room would be great, but how to find time to go there would be the trick.

  13. Wouldn't it be great if Santa really would deliver those things?? Wonder what T's list might include???

  14. What a fun post! I can agree with many things on this list! ;)

  15. I want a sound proof craft room!!! :-D

  16. "The truth is that while you are not totally responsible for what does and doesn't happen to you, you are responsible for how you respond to what happens to you.

I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
