Dear Santa

Dear Santa,

I know I’m a little old for this, but if I believe, I shall receive, right? I still believe. I promise. Here is what I would really, really, really, really, really like for Christmas this year.

1.)To not have to change another diaper until I have grandchildren. Seriously. I’ve been changing diapers for almost 11 years straight. I will happily take Olivia to the potty 100 times a day as long as I don’t have to change another diaper. Please?

2.) My pre-children abs back. They were my favorite part of my body. Now? My abs make me sad and mad and grossed out. I workout daily, I eat healthy and I do situps every day. And yet…my abs are still pathetic. I would really love my old abs back.

3.) A good night’s sleep. I don’t know what is wrong with me but I can’t sleep lately. I take 3 melatonin and it helps me fall asleep. Then I wake up at 3 a.m. Every. Single. Morning. I just want an entire of sleep.

4.) Heidi Klum’s legs. I’ve always hated my legs. I would like to have long, lean legs for just one day. Then I’ll give them back. I’ll wear shorts all day and take lots of pictures and then give them back.

5.) A vacation. Anywhere. With or without kids. Just take me away from here!!

That’s it. I know it’s all for me and it’s selfish, but it’s really what I’d like. Oh and healthy kids and world peace. Thanks.

Love,
Elastamom

  1. Nice list. I’m sure you legs and abs are just fine but as long as you are wishing wish some for me too please. About the sleep part……have you ever seen an acupuncturist. I had the whole waking up every night at 3 thing going and she worked on something specific for what ever organ that is connected to that time of day and it worked. Everything is connected and tells a story about your body. Really strange and I don’t understand but I do sleep better so I don’t ask to many questions.

  2. I am so sorry I haven’t been by to leave a comment. I have been giving myself a vaca from the internet and recently came back. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t now stalked you and read every post I have missed. Baby Olivia is so flipping cute. Can I just tell you her and Lily make the same sweetest little noises. Me and Brittany were watching them together I think last weekend and we both couldn’t stop talking about how they make the same sounds! Not that they just sound a like but it’s like they are talking the same… does that make sense? Anyways thank you for sharing those. It was sooooooooooooooooooooo cute to see her. I don’t know why I find it so special to see her as a baby but it just melted my heart.

    And to DEAR FREAKING SANTA… please grant everyone, everything on their wish list!!! I mean is that too much to ask? We have all been amazingly awesome this year, especially because I think and categorize this year as a rough one, for a lot of people. And what the hell about our abs? My abs use to be my favorite thing too…. I just don’t understand that by having babies and making the wonderful sacrifice of carrying a pregnancy our bodies don’t just magically come back!!! Seriously, WHY!!!! It should be a mommy present from the universe for saying “thank you, for continuing life on this earth” hahahahah I am just being dramatic, but seriously…. what is with the bodies acting like they have been physically scared and traumatized for life? I wish that all your things on your wish list come true. Especially the vacations, we all need a little re-jump-er to get back in to the swing of things, even more so when it is cold and snowy and gloomy out {well it stays gloomy here… don’t know about your state}.

    I love your blog, and the way you write. You crack me up!!! You are very creative and a good writer. Keep it up! This is probably my favorite blog of all time!

  3. Isn’t the whole point of writing a letter to Santa to be selfish? Who else are we going to ask to bring us these things. but honestly, I don’t think your request to not have to ever change another diaper until you have grandchildren is selfish. You’re asking for O to have more independence and that’s not selfish at all.

    I do love this letter though. So much fun here.

  4. Sometimes I wonder. If I didn’t put any gifts under the tree. Let’s just say…. Would there maybe be something special there? Do I just need to BELIEVE?

  5. An entire night of sleep. Oh what I wouldn’t give for that.

  6. Yes on #2, double yes, yes, and yes. Can I just copy your list and leave it for Santa too. I’ll change the names.

  7. Love your list! I long for that good night’s sleep. Just one, I won’t be greedy!
