thank goodness my kids request such sensible Christmas gifts

My 12 year old wants a pony. She's so serious, she wrote a two page paper on why. This is the priceless letter we just received from her:

Sorry, the author requested I remove her letter, some sensitive feelers on my little gal.

What does a parent say to that?


Now, if that wasn't enough to swallow, my 10 year old son told me (in all seriousness) that all he wants for Christmas is a monkey. A real, live throwing-poo-around-their-cage monkey. Nothing else. Then he spent about an hour researching pet monkeys online. He is completely convinced it's an excellent idea and having a pet monkey around the house would be no trouble at all.

So that- in a nutshell- is what I'm working with this Christmas...

How sweet is she? That is the cutest letter I have ever read. She is so funny. Now for F that is funny he wants a monkey. That will be nice I wont have to drive very far to take Harper to a zoo. We can just stop by the Olpin's house for our enjoyment.

Q convinced me. If Daybreak allowed ponies I would totally get one. I LOVE them. And a mini goat of coarse.

the thing I love is that she is such good writer, I wish my 7th grader would write a 2 page letter-that is awesome! Love the monkey...

I am so impressed. She has pretty much covered everything. Nothing left to do but go get her a pony.
