dear son

You are tired. You need a nap. I know this because you started crying on the way to storytime because you dropped your toy in the car and I could not do the gymnastics required to retrieve it while operating a moving vehicle in the rain.

And FYI, Christmas is coming soon. If you do not take the occasional nap. I cannot make the occasional gift. Please do not make your mother stay up until 2:00 am in the five nights preceding Christmas to make sure that you have a sufficiently joyous holiday.

Go to sleep. Go to sleep. gotosleepgotosleepgotosleepgotosleep...


Your Mother. And Santa.


  1. LOL!! My oldest today wanted me to read something while driving. When I told him I couldn't, he held it up and told me that I should be able to read it in the rearview mirror. Right. Like I can read small print, backwards, while driving in the rain. Glad I'm not the only one!

  2. They should teach moms a class, "Automobile Acrobatics." I swear, I get those requests daily.

    Even more fun in the rain!
