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.

I HATE IT!!!

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