My Christmas Letters

Dear Azúcar,

I want you to know that I DID eat some pie crust this year and I didn't totally hate it. Baby steps, I am taking them.



Dear Elementary School,

I will be taking my son out of school this next week so that we can see Santa. I know you don't get why I can't just go on the weekend. Here's the thing, I hate standing in line. I especially hate standing in line with my kids. So, we're just going to go during school hours to avoid as much social interaction as humanly possible.

Dear  Patience,

Stop being so elusive. While I have a grand time trying to find you, it is a rather lot of work. If you could maybe just tap me on the shoulder or even better, knock me upside the head sometimes, I'd be eternally grateful.

~please let them live another day


  1. You know what my favorite thing is about you? You say all of the things I'm thinking in my head as I'm walking through Shop Rite counting to 964 so that I DON'T kill my children!!


  2. Aw, thanks Stella.

  3. I totally am going to take my daughter out of school to see Santa. We're going with my mom and my sister and her kids too and honestly, with all of us it'd be best if we got there, got through, and went home. I totally get ya!

  4. Yay! Yay!

    Next time you're in these here parts, you let me know. Pie action.

  5. I am sure the Kindergarten teacher will understand.

    If not...who cares. She can think of it as an educational field meet one of the most influential people in the world.

  6. I feel the same way, why wait in line on the weekend, just take the kid out and who cares, they don't do anything important in the afternoon, some kindergarten classes take naps still, I'm sure your kid can miss that.

  7. I really shouldn't read your blog on a full bladder. It's dangerous, I tell you.

  8. I so get that last one especially. Becca is currently shrieking at a decibel level that is capable of melting ear wax.
