My Grown Up Christmas List

Here are a few things I would really like for Christmas.  Forgive me if not all of them are for world peace but I am human:
1. I want more patience
2. I want Jane to use the POTTY!!
3. I want sad things to stop happening from now until after Christmas so that Christmas will continue to be a special holiday and not one people dread.
4. I want more time to spend with my children and I want to enjoy every minute spent.
5. I want the Post Office to have a drive thru.
6. I want Diet Coke, French Fries, and Cookies to be healthy. 
7. I want infertility to cease.
8. I want to take piano lessons.
9. I want time to start a new hobby like sewing or scrap booking or reading.
10. I want to be a better mother and a better wife.

My list would also include your numbers 5,6,7, & 8. I too would include your # 2 because that must be so tuff.

...I Still Believe ;)

I love your list. It made me think about what I really want for Christmas, besides a whole day to myself and my children not waking up at the crack of dawn.

that is a great post, only change is that diet coke, fries and cookies would be healthy! but please don't take away the flavor!

amanda said...

Ok Becky I changed it just for you. I guess it would be better if they were healthy because then I'd really be eating right.

So according to number 7 are you prego or just not wanting to get pregnant so easy??? I love the drive thru at the post office, I too wish for that. And wouldn't it be so nice if all of the bad food were healthy???

amanda said...

Ashley,
NO I'm not prego I just wish you were.

Hey Amanda - I am finally checking out this blog. Your page is so cute. I love your list...I posted some ideas for ya on your "HELP!" post. I hope Santa brings you everything you want!

Good news, there is a healthy diet coke. The new Diet Coke Plus (with added vitamins) and I think that McDonalds fries are not fried in the hydrogenated oil, vegetable oil. These are both really healthy options...j/k.. But it would be fun if they really tricked us into thinking that they are.

I'm glad I finally registered on google so I can comment. Your list made me cry too. I wish for those things for you and wish that I could grant them like Santa did in the old days.
