What do you want for Christmas?

I routinely ask my girls this question.  Their responses change all the time and I plumb forget what they said previously. 

Last night, I asked the girls again, “What do you want for Christmas?”  Emma answered, “Whatever you want to give me, Momma.”  (God love her!)  Addie answered, “The whole world!”  I rolled my eyes, “How about you be more specific?”  She answered, “Ok, I want a real live man, ear wax and an iPod.”  Then she added, “And a pimple.”

I’m thinking she’s been fed crack.

  2. You kno, if you get the right real live man, he may already have an iPod, ear wax and a pimple. Four gifts in one! Christmas shopping is over!

    I was gonna say I have the ear wax and pimple covered…and can be persuaded to contribute Joe- (that’s to cover the ‘real live man’ request in case you didn’t know)- but I’d go with what what sean said, his suggestion covers all 4 requests. And you could get her a globe, that way she gets the ‘whole world’ too. Ah, better look out for Addie, she’ll be our next domestic diva!

    Have you tried looking on ebay? They say (I don’t know who they is) you can get just about anything there. You might just ger a real bargain for a real man, some ear wax, a pimple and the iPod.

    Maybe she is just using the ploy we all used as kids to get what she really wants for Christmas. As a kid, you want a bike, but you know not to ask for that first thing off, so you ask for a baby brother. Ain’t gonna happen. OK, how about a pony? Still no? Well, I guess I can settle for a bike.
    She wants a real live man, but she probably wont get it. So she asks for ear wax and a pimple. Now what kind of parent would do that to a child? So that just leaves the iPod. That girl is smart.
