    A Little Rant on Santa

    When our kids were still visiting Santa I tried to manage their requests.

    Santa: “What can I bring for you this year, buddy?”

    My cute kid: “Abba babba doodie,” or something. It’s hard to hear crouched behind Santa’s broad back – the best position from which to provide necessary coaching.

    Me (sotto voce): “Matchbox cars and Star Wars Legos, Santa. MATCHBOX CARS, STAR WARS … and, and books, lots of BOOKS.”

    This Present

    I was worn down by the minutia of mothering. The days were consumed with relentless chores that keep the machine of a home life humming: changing the kitty litter, filling the gas tank, sweeping the floors, folding the towels and vacuuming the same carpet over and over.
