You're probably busy finishing up your shopping or wrapping gifts, so I won't keep you, but wanted to share this Santa Letter From Mom that's been traveling around Groups and Journals on CafeMom. It was a nice few-minute break for me.

Some of what Mom wishes for:

I'd like a pair of legs that don't ache after a day of chasing kids (in any color, except purple, which I already have) and arms that don't flap in the breeze, but are strong enough to carry a screaming toddler out of the candy aisle in the grocery store.

I'd also like a waist, since I lost mine somewhere in the seventh month of my last pregnancy.

If you're hauling big ticket items this year I'd like a car with fingerprint resistant windows and a radio that only plays adult music; a television that doesn't broadcast any programs containing talking animals; and a refrigerator with a secret compartment behind the crisper where I can hide to talk on the phone.
