I am writing you for the first time since I was a little girl. I am not asking for much this year. I already have pretty much everything I need. However, this morning, it was brought to my attention I do need something else. I am not sure if they make it. I am not sure if there is even such a thing. I know there are variations of it out there but not sure if they make this kind.
I want to remind you that I have been VERY good this year! I have sacrificed a lot in my life for my family. I have given up the dream of being a successful business owner so that I can raise our daughter. I have put aside a lot of my needs and desires so that my husband can pursue his career as a firefighter. I have not asked for much from anyone. I have been there for family who needed me, and friends who have needed me. I have been nice (for the most part) to my husband. I have been very nice and patient (for the most part) to our daughter. I have been nice to total strangers and have even done random acts of kindness. I am QUITE sure I have made your "nice list" this year!
However, I fear that if I do not receive the one thing I think I need, I may be transferred to the "naughty list" next year.
All I am asking for is some sort of ear filter. I want something that is a comfortable fit. I need something I can sleep in and not even know it is there. I definitely need something that allows me to hear my daughter if she needs me. I need something that allows me to hear the phone (but ONLY if it is an emergency), or other sounds that will allow me to protect my family and myself. This filter NEEDS to drown out hubby's snoring. He snored last night and I am pretty grumpy today from lack of sleep. But I will even take listening to him snore if you can create something to drown out the munchkin's SUPER SUPER annoying aquarium in her crib. Honestly Santa, I thought the six-minute mode was bad. She had it on that mode one night and played the thing allllllllllllllllllll night long. Six minutes is a LONG time when it is played at 2, 215, 230, etc in the middle of the night.
However, somehow...some way...that thing now has a 12 minute mode. I know it is that long because I stared at the clock the entire 12 minutes wondering when that thing would stop making noise. I need these ear filters to drown that ANNOYING sound out but still allow me to hear her if she needs me. I know I could take her aquarium out of her crib, but that would not be a nice thing to do since she loves it so much! Plus, remember, I am trying to stay on the "nice" list. I usually try and remember to change the aquarium to a ear-friendly mode before she goes to bed but SOME HOW it does not stay there. SOME HOW that
So Santa...PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help a woman out! Can you have your elves concoct something to drown out the annoying sounds but allow in the important ones? I REALLY don't want your helper reporting bad about ME next year so anything you can do would be VERY appreciated!!!
Thanks Santa! You are the best! Now I am going to go and count to ten before I get more grumpy. Maybe I'll count to 100.
