I know it's a little soon to be writing you, but I'm kind of hoping that you'll bring me an early Christmas present.
You see, I'm a mom and a blogger. And I live in Mexico. Interesting things happen almost daily. I like to capture those moments in photographs, for both my family and my blog friends. My camera isn't a fancy one. It's a point and shoot Sony something-or-other. Even though I'd like a new camera someday, what I really want is a set of rechargeable batteries.
Buying batteries isn't my problem, but keeping them is. Of the last pack I bought, I only used 2 for my camera and the rest of the batteries were used for remote controls, wall clocks and an endless number of battery-operated toys that you brought my kids in previous years.
Had my children not used my latest batch of batteries for
My favorite moment from the party, that I still can't believe I didn't get on film, was when the quarteto was taking requests from the couples at the party. Everyone had a song or two that they wanted to hear, but Hubby drew a complete blank. Instead of suggesting song titles to my Hubby, the lead singer asked for my name, then huddled with the rest of the band for a few minutes before singing a song they wrote just. for. me. "Leslie...tus ojos...tu voz...tu sonrisa...Leslie..." (Leslie...your eyes...your voice...your smile...Leslie...) Sigh! It was the most beautiful and romantic song I had ever heard. One I will probably never hear again.
If I had rechargeable batteries, I'd never miss another moment like that. I would make sure to keep my batteries charged, just like I do with my Kindle. (That's how I was able to keep the party guests informed with up-to-the-minute news of the Pacquio vs. Margarito fight.)
So please, Santa...Could you bring me some rechargeable batteries before Christmas? I wouldn't want to miss something special that could happen at any of the celebrations in the coming weeks, like my in-law's anniversary extravaganza and Hope's 13th birthday.
Not only would you be helping me, but you'd also be saving the planet.
I promise to make you an extra batch of those delicious cinnamon cookies that you love.
Hope to see you soon.
