Thank you so much for reaching out! I am glad that you enjoyed my Letter to Santa. As I was writing it, I remembered all the ridiculous gift requests that my kids have had over the years, so I made a ridiculous list of my own. I thought other moms might like some ideas for their lists. :)

Happy New Year, Marsha, and thanks again for contacting me!



Enjoyed your piece in Atlanta Parent recently on the tooth fairy. Sounds like we are of similar disposition. Just wanted to keep up with you. See my blog at cabarbo.wordpress.com



Thanks for reaching out, Kim. It is always nice to hear from someone who enjoyed what I wrote. Sadly, the essay is based on true events. :) I will head over to check out your blog now. Keep in touch. Pam
