Hey Santa! One More Thing….

With all of the stalking letters I have been writing to Santa, and last-minute trips to peek in his windows speak to him about adjustments in his obviously flawed system, I forgot to talk to him about gifts that he didn’t deliver to me when I was a child.

I forgot to mention the emotional scaring.

Lucky for both of us I have comprised another letter, indicating my expectations for this year.

I know he won’t disappoint.

Dear Santa,

It has been so great getting to know you these past few weeks. I feel like we have developed a friendship and began to mould the perfect relationship, regardless of  what the courts might refer to as a “restraining order breach.”

I am here to assist you, bring new ideas, and remind you of failed attempts at gift giving whenever you may need me.

That being said.

I would like to bring your attention to my youth; the precious years that shaped my future.

There were a few gifts that I had listed every year and waited patiently for. but alas, did not receive.

Every. Year.

I know it’s not because you were unable to procure these items, I had friends who held them in their very arms on Christmas day while I was left shaking the tree upside down with the hopes that something was missed.

So this year, Santa my friend, I am looking forward to;

1.  A canopy bed; pink in colour, with frills on the sides of the canopy. I would prefer a twin (I do not feel I need to explain this).

2. A play house. NO, my fathers woodshed will NOT do. I want a wooden play house made with love and a tiny kitchenette inside. The curtains should be chequered and open to let the sun in and I gross my fingers and wish on a star that there is a “Home Sweet Home” sign on the wall.

3. A telephone in my room. A cordless phone with the base attached in my parents room does not count. I want the jack in my room and the phone that is shaped like lips. Oh the hilarity.

4. A doodle bear. The forbidden art of drawing on your toys came to life with the Doodle Bear and I craved a taste of it! Oh the thrill! Send it my way!

5. To be skinny. Every year I have asked for this gift and every year I open my eyes and I’m left empty-handed. This year I am looking forward to your making up for years past! Feel free to fix my boobs too!

    Since you and Santa are buddies, can you put in a word for me on the present I never got? A big ass doll house complete with garage and mini cars.


    PS: I hope you can your canopy bed.

    You know what I wanted so badly…
    Baby Skates.
    Remember the ones that were made of plastic and hooked on to your shoes.
    I wanted them.
    Santa didnt want me to kill myself on them.
    Such a fun killer.
    You think he’ll send me a gallbladder?

      we bought those skates..Bob Skates.
      Our daughter wore them this year.
      Pain. In. The. Ass.

      I’ll try to find someone who is finished with their gallbladder and send it your way.

      why did our parents keep us from these joys?

        my sister used to think our mom only had us so she could have little slaves to do housework (we did no more housework than an average kid), so that’s probably why 🙂

    I’m gonna need a cure for the side ache you just gave me!! As my 4yr old would say: Your cracking me up!! I just really enjoyed this letter. As a matter of fact I am so happy I found you and your blog. As a working mom of two girls I find you so relatable. I hope you get everything you asked for. I mean what good would breaking a restraining order be if you can’t at least get something out of (that doesn’t involve jail or coal). Merry Christmas -Laverne

      You flatter me!!!
      I am happy to report I didn’t get in trouble for visiting Santa again but that’s because he didn’t see me looking through his windows or hiding in his closet.

    Hee! Love this!

      I’ll slid that in my next list because there will be more.
