Dear A: It is a bit difficult to know what to get you from Santa since you are not very verbal. I found myself for the first time ever having to look for presents for kids with special needs. It is strange because to us you are just A, a little behind on talking, but our son that is so much fun and who has the best smile ever. I wonder what other parents do? I have found some awesome items on Amazon. Your therapists also had great recommendations. I was especially happy to see they have a Sensitive Santa day at our local mall for kids with sensory disorders.
Dear B: Someday when you have kids, I hope you read this. Every day you ask me to call Santa, multiple times. You have been doing this since the summer. You see a toy you love and tell me to call him and get money. In some ways it has been a blessing because you do not melt down if I can’t get you something, but I swear I have called Santa at least 2000 times at this point.
Dear Students: Thank you for making this transition to Winter Break so easy. No one is bouncing off the walls yet.
Dear Ky and Kev: I am looking forward to seeing you guys soon, hope you rocked your finals.
Dear Katie: I just sent you a copy of Dave Ramsey’s book The Total Money Makeover. I have spent some time listening to his videos and I think that every young adult should hear or read what he has to say about saving money. Hope you like it.
Dear Husband: The whirlwind we call holidays is upon us. I am looking forward to spending break home with you all. Let the menu planning and wrapping begin!
Dear Subscription Box Companies: I have fallen a bit behind lately due to some medical issues but I just started receiving my December boxes and they are fantastic. I think this may be my favorite time of year for boxes.
Dear Citrus Lane: I read the memos about you closing and yet I see your still taking new subscriptions on your site. Is it possible you are staying in business? I sure hope so! I went ahead and bought a Mystery Box just in case. You are A’s favorite box in the world.
