All I want for Christmas

Ellie climbed in bed with us this morning.  
We are a family that is big into morning snuggles. 
She picked up an ad and looked through the pages.  

After about a minute she said, "Mom, I really want an American Girl Doll for Christmas."
Then a pause

"But what I want even more than that is to have Mia."
"All I want for Christmas is Mia, mom."

All I could say is "Me too."

She is too young to have so much sadness in her life.  Too young. 
She should not be burdened to the extend she has been.


She shouldn't have her little sister and best friend on her Christmas wish list. 
Ahhhhhh!  It makes me ill!
