Revised Christmas List...

I made up my Christmas list weeks ago.

But I've changed my mind.

I want new stuff:
  • I want the germs that are plaguing my house to cease and desist. No more vomiting. Please. And if my 15 month old could stop emitting farts that smell like a Port-a-Potty on a July afternoon at the fair, that would be AWESOME.
  • I want to be able to find a pair of tweezers. I know. It sounds like an odd request. But, somewhere in this house, I own FOUR PAIRS of tweezers. And yet my eyebrows are starting to look more and more Old Saint Nick-ish by the day because I.can't.find. a single pair. All four of them would make a great stocking stuffer.
  • Somehow in the past week, the name ABBY has appeared on my darling, perfect, red mama chair. I love this mama chair. It's my favorite Craigslist find ever. But the big, black ABBY is really kind of killing the appeal. When I asked my kids, glaring at the 5 year old, WHO wrote it, they responded "Um... Abby?" I would like "Abby" remover.
  • I would like my kids to decide that wearing pants is a good idea. Especially if they insist on dancing in front of the front window to "Run, Run, Rudolph", as is their habit.
  • I would like "The Drummer Boy" to never.darken.my.doorstep.again. I'll bet his mother hated the drum every bit as much as I do.
  • My cheekbones. (Okay, it's a repeat request. I asked for them back in 2005, 2006, 2008, as well. But, hey, at least 2007 was a good year.)

That's all for now, but stay tuned. It may change again.

I'd be happy if her burps just stopped smelling like that.

I hope you get everything on your list.

And for the record, I hate the drummer boy song too. Almost as much as the Christmas shoes song, especially the chorus of creepy kids voices.

I love your Christmas list. I definitely have some of those same things on MY list this year! ;)

Cute list! I can relate to the tweezers request : ) I always have one pair in my (huge) make up bag but I can never find it! NEVER! Only when I don't need them are they sitting right on top.

My other request would be to have one bath that is not interrupted by little fingers crawling under the door.

Oooooooh I hear you on the first one... my 15 month old does that too when he's sick. Course, he thinks it's cool cuz his brothers crack up everytime anyone "fluffs" ... I often have a invisible shield around my tweezers too... I have Picasso drawing all over my walls... my boys like going shirtless (rolling eyes) ... I hope you get your wishes :D

We just moved. Kid 2 is starting to potty-train and kid 1 wants to do it all again too - right down to the no-pants. I think I gained 5 pounds just last weekend. Thanks for letting me know I'm reeeeaally not alone.
