Dear Someone (and a giveaway)

Dear Bug,


I get it: You. like. order. I was very pleased when you were playing quietly in your room. I should have known you were on a mission when you ran from room to room then back into your room and shut the door. When you called to show me what you had done, I was eager to see.

Did you notice the surprise on my face when I looked on your bed. There all lined up in one row were the tampon applicators. In another perfectly straight row were the tampons. All the wrappers were in the tucked neatly in the trash.

See...order.

Love,
Mommy


Dear CVS,


I'll be over soon. I need to stock up on tampons and put them on a higher shelf in my house.


Signed,
Using my extra care card AGAIN

Dear Snow,

Are you really coming again tomorrow? This is been a real winter for us! Nearly twenty inches of snow in December (it's okay that you ruined altered my weekend plans--it was nice to see you and shoveling was invigorating). Five inches earlier this week after making snowballs with Bug was perfect!


I'm not sure I believe you'll be back this weekend with 12 inches or more but I'll be watching! If you do visit, I'll make sure there's plenty of hot chocolate in the house after we've played together (wine, too).


Signed,
Snowmama


PS. Have you heard Bug singing "Frosty the Mommy?"


Dear Work,


What a fun time it's been! We released a new book last week and another one is going to the printer tomorrow. This week has been filled with edits, corrections, cover proofs, copyright issues...all fun stuff. I can't wait for that new book smell to arrive!


Signed,
Mag


Dear Everyone,


Kristen Chase of Motherhood Uncensored has agreed to sign a copy of her new book, The Mominatrix's Guide to Sex for a giveaway (don't you love signed books?!).


From amazon: Kristen proves that there is more to motherhood than diapers and timeouts. Good moms can be sexy mamas with just a little mominatrix training!


Leave a comment for a chance to win the book and I'll pick a winner on Monday, February 8.


Signed,
Mag

  4. Dear Mag, thank you so much for keeping this next storm in your backyard rather than mine. Right about now, I'll even take the cold over more snow.

    My son likes order too. I guess it's a good thing, but it gets a little out of control.
