S's list for Santa this year, verbatim:
- Another Memory game [we have 2 already] that's easy-peasy for Baby R
- Another elf because I love elves
- Books we don't have to take back to the library [which makes us sound nearly barren of books, yet we easily have over 100 between her bookshelf, Baby R's bookshelf and the shelf in the playroom]
- My own, OWN TV [you are your father's child]
- A TV for Baby R's room [so, sooo your father's child]
- A special library book light for Mommy that Mommy doesn't have to take back [I'm a bit perplexed by this one, as I have a book light that I've never had to return...]
Then you signed your name, and it was really well done. So you signed it again. Then I asked if you wanted to write your last name since you worked on that at school last week. So you did. But now when I look at it, all I can think of is Rosanne Rosanne-a-danna from SNL because of the repetition of your first name.
My sweet girl. You are so precious. You may have asked for your own TV in your room, but half the things on your list are things for others. I love you.
