Today’s post is a little insight into what I would have asked Santa for this year…
My name is Rachel, and I am 30 years old. I’ve mostly been a good girl this year. Mostly.
I don’t ask for a lot, but for Christmas this year, I would really like the following:
- A bath. In peace. Without a 4 year old hammering on the door shouting ‘Mommmyyyyyyy, I need a poo’, a 3 year old barging in to play with a plastic penguin, and a 1 year old who has escaped the boundaries of the lounge.
- A trip to the toilet alone. See above.
- To be able to have something to eat without a small boy hovering, dribbling and stealing it off me.
- To be able to drink a cup of coffee whilst it’s still hot. Whilst on the subject of coffee, I’d quite like a posh coffee machine as well.
- A full nights sleep. You know, one where I’m not searching down the side of a bed for a glow in the dark dummy that certainly does not glow in the dark.
- To get to 6pm on the evening and not have a flat mobile phone because a certain 3 year old keeps nicking it to watch Kinder Egg videos
- To go 24 hours without watching Peppa bloody Pig
- For someone to come and put the two baskets of clean washing away
- A new planner. Three kids under 5 has completely pickled my brain. If it ain’t written down, it doesn’t happen
- To wear clothes for more than ten minutes without a trail of snot or dribble appearing across them
To be honest Santa, I know you can’t perform miracles, so just pop that coffee machine and planner under the tree and I’ll be happy.
Lots of love,
