Dear Santa

Those advertising execs should be dancing in their suits because their clever tactics have done a number on my children yet again this year. My kids have a case of the "I Want That" syndrome. This is where they see commercial after commercial of beautiful children playing with amazing toys that look like sooooo much fun, and no matter what the toy is, they shout out "I Want That". And by the way, it is not in a sweet innocent child is in a whiny strung out voice that says "Puhhhleeez mom....every other kid in the world is gonna get that toy except me and its no fair" voice. So for the next few days I will feature each of my kids' Christmas lists. Hopefully it will be helpful for those of you who have the unfortunate responsiblity of finding my kids a gift, and for those of you who don't, it may give you some hints for a child on your Christmas list. Let the fun begin!
