{4 Things Moms Really Want for Christmas}

4 Gifts Moms Really Want for Christmas |

  1. To Sleep In Yep, we just want to sleep in. And that doesn’t mean we want you to wake us up and inquire as to whether or not we would like to continue our peaceful slumber. No no, my friend. That means you should quietly exit the bedroom, quietly escort our children to a far away land {like the kitchen}, fix them breakfast, monitor their behavior {that means no fighting before 9am}, and let us continue that dreamy state for just a little longer. Just a little bit, that’s all we want.
  2. To Go Shopping Without a Time Limit Back when we didn’t have children, I used to go to the mall and just walk around. Shop, peruse, build my fat cells with a gooey and delicious Cinnabon, gasp at Needless Markup’s prices, and generally just waste my life for the day. It was pretty glorious. We’d love to do that again, even if it’s just once a year. Shopping without time limits when you have children is like a unicorn. If you find and deliver the unicorn we will love you long time.
  3. To Not Clean the House I don’t actually know if a day goes by that I’m not cleaning. I’m not even talking about seriously cleaning the house. I’m talking about the constant picking up. It’s like toys, shoes, dishes, and clothes are part of a replication conspiracy, designed to make me hit the fast track for the loony bin. One day, just one day without the constant pickup! Ahhhh yes, I can visualize it. Can you make that happen? Can you be the picker up’er? Just for one day?
  4. To Have a Meal Uninterrupted “No, you can’t some of my dinner. We’re eating the same thing. No, you can’t some of my wine. Drink your water. Yes, you have to eat that. No, I’m not making you something else. No, you aren’t finished yet. Yes, I’m still eating. Please don’t throw that. Sit on your bum bum. Hey, hey, quit it. I mean it, stop. I’m not going to tell you again. What’s with all the whining?” Sound familiar? Yes, I thought so. Take me out to dinner. Just the two of us. And no, I’m not picking the place either.

Thank you. We love you. Merry Christmas.

Hugs and Love from

  1. YES. This. All of it. That’s all I want. I don’t need presents or cookies or anything else. Just this list. Or even just #1 and #4.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family!! 🙂

    1. Riiiggghhhhttttt Mia??? Apparently I didn’t add a shower/bathroom by your lonesome. I have not yet experienced that, but realize it is on the horizon. Perhaps I should add it to the list?!?! 🙂

I'd Love to Hear From You!
