Hi, it's me, Shelley. Remember me? I have been doing your job for several years. Don't worry, I work really hard to make you look good. I'll do it again this year too, but here is the thing - I don't have any help, not even one elf. And while I'm doing your job, I have a million other hats to wear as well, taxidriver, housekeeper, cook, baker, event planner, caregiver, counselor, nurse, decorator, teacher, coach, waitress, seamstress, personal shopper, banker, handyman (er, person) - you get the picture. All of this in addition to my real job, which by the way, doesn't pay that great. Oh and I can't forget the most important title of all, Mom.
I constantly do and give to others, so this year I am going to be a bit selfish and ask for something for ME. Just me. I have been so good all year, and I really deserve it. Please Santa, please. Please send me a clone. I need someone else to do all of the stuff I normally do so I can enjoy some quality Christmas time with my kids. I know that is a huge request, but if you could find a way to deliver, it would mean the world to me and my 2 little ones. If a clone is not possible, would you just take a moment, think of me, and send good vibes my way. It would be amazing to know that someone else is thinking of me while I bust my tail to keep this show going (and give you all the credit).
