Crazy's Christmas Letter

Crazy's Christmas Letter

Today's Word to Your Motha Wednesday has been temporarily suspended to bring you this important message. You know how yesterday I revealed The Kid's 50 item Christmas List? Well, today I have a little something from my son. I just happened to find this lying on the table yesterday afternoon after having published the Christmas List post. I don't know when Crazy did it or why, but note the difference.

He starts the darn thing with "Dear Myself." It doesn't get any cuter than that, does it? He's included portraits of our two new kitties. They really do look like that. And they "is begging" for more food. It should break a poor writer's heart to see her own child writing with such atrocious grammer, but I find it funny. I vow by the time he goes off to college, he'll know subject-verb agreement.

What the kitties are saying in this letter is immaterial since typically it's not suitable for publication, but I couldn't include the letter without including the kitty conversation.

I swear that kid may be crazy, but I couldn't love him any more.

Why I Hate The Elf On The Shelf

I'm not happy about this post. I love mocking ridiculous things, but I feel most comfortable poking fun at stuff I like. Things like my college football team, my kids' quirks, my brother's ability to get free stuff from anyone he meets, and how my mom identifies herself by name when she leaves me a message. "Oh, hi Amy. This is your mom. Susan." My favorite target is myself. But today I turn my disdain outward, to a society that complains about consumerism and too many commitments, but spends $30 dollars for the privilege of managing the "magic" of a cheaply made stuffed elf during the busiest month of the year.   Read more >
