Dear Christmas

An Open Letter From a Typical Mom at Christmas Time

A letter by a tired, stressed, and frazzled mom about all things kids at Christmas time; because not everything about Christmas is merry and bright. - HeyHonestlyMommy.com

Dear Christmas,

You can take a hike!

I don’t appreciate your hype, or stress, or the way you always make me feel so inadequate. Perfect little hand frosted gingerbread cookies with three buttons and a smile; I’m a mom, I don’t have time for that!

Or how about finding the perfect gift for everyone on your gift list; do you even know how many stores I’d need to go to for that!? Walmart just won’t cut it this year.

I try and I try and I try, but of course at least one little brat always ends up hating the gift that I chose for them. *cue steam rolling out of ears* I put in all this time and effort into picking out the perfect gift for each stink’in kid and what do I get? A thank you? Oh no that’d be too much. How about a hug? Not on your life.

So really, dear Christmas, I’d just love to get rid of the holiday stress altogether. To kick back a little; actually enjoy the season for once. But as a mom that is strictly not allowed.

I mean besides the baking, and the parties, and the presents, and the pageants, you also know someone -scratch that- everyone is going to be sick. If I could make it through just one holiday event without a sick child it would basically be like the miracle of immaculate inception all over again.

And how ’bout those attitudes?

I know they say the Christmas season and the whole Santa bit is supposed to help keep naughty little children in line; what a load of BS! No, for real, I’m calling it this year. Christmas and myths of a fat man in a red suit ain’t keep’in my little monsters in line.

What I really Want…

Of course you’ve heard the song “All I Want for Christmas,” well let me just say that all this mama wants for Christmas is one simple thing; quiet. Well really, peace and quiet. You know what? As long as I’m throwing together a wish list, how about some good attitudes for a change? Aaaaand a new laptop, iPhone, and camera would be great too. A mini van wouldn’t hurt either.

But really, let’s just keep it simple; peace and quiet, okay?

I don’t mean to harp on you dear Christmas, to be rude, or grumpy, but sometimes it’s all just a little much.

I hope you can understand and that this speech doesn’t land me on the naughty list… Wait, what happens to adults who end up on the naughty list? *gasps* Please tell me they don’t have to go to a Christmas party with all the children who made it on the list? Lord have mercy.

That would be akin to Dante’s Inferno.

*face palm*

Signed,

This Tired Mom Who’s Just Trying to Make it Through the Holiday Season
