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