Letters To Santa

Dear Santa:

I have two adorable little boys. They are Jacob and Ben. I love them dearly most days. Other days not so much. They make me smile when they are sweet to each other and they don't know Mommy is watching. Other days, they are not so sweet and have battle wounds to prove their mischief.

Jacob is in the 1st Grade. He is a reading maniac and a math wizard. He loves to go to school most days; other days not so much. He is a good listener most days; others not so much. He will do his chores with a small amount of prodding/begging/pleading most days; other days not so much.

Benjamin just turned three years old. He is quite a gem EVERY day. Some days he sparkles like a diamond when he says the sweetest and cutest things. Other days he's a black onyx, getting into mischief, making a mess, and REFUSING to potty train. This last "little" thing is what drives poor Mommy crazy. He knows when He has to do his business. He even goes into the bathroom, closes/locks the door, does his thing (in his diaper), and then comes to tell me when he's done. I've resorted to shaming him into potty-training by only buys girlie diapers with cute purple hearts.

Santa, I know it sounds like I have lots of complaints about my boy. I admit that I do. But I gladly will take all the not-so-good with the good, because they are true blessings and miracles in my life. They are my gifts from a loving Father in Heaven. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Tired and Happy Mommy, Jenny Asay

P.S. Here are some pictures of the boys writing letters to Santa and putting them in the special Santa Claus mailbox at Macy's.
