All I want for Christmas is….Me!

with 16 comments

The theme of this week’s Special Needs Blog Hop for this week: What I Want for Christmas.

I’ve already found what I want for Christmas and added it to my Amazon Wish List.

It is Me.

Yesterday I was on Facebook, and I went to close it down, but instead I clicked the area above it, where my “Add to Wish List” button from Amazon is located.  Immediately it linked up my profile to my Amazon Wish List.  Imagine my delight when I found I could purchase myself, for the very reasonable price of $5.99!

I left myself on the wish list, because I can think of nothing else I need more.

Another me to do the housework while I play with the kids.

One to play with Cubby and one for Pudding.  No guilt over divided attention.

I could stay at home with the napping Cubby while driving Pudding to her therapy appointments.

There would be a me to stay home with the kids while another went on a date with the hubby, or had a girl’s night out.

Let’s not forget the homesick me who could fly back to England for Christmas while the other one got to stay here.

I think I might win a prize for the most narcissistic wish, but I’m not deleting me from my list!

  1. I love it. could I buy that other you to stay home with your kids so we could get together? 🙂

    (by the way, your list is one of the reasons my husband says polygamy wouldn’t be all that bad 🙂 )

    • Oh yes, definitely. I’m actually quite thrifty, I’d never find a babysitter for $5.99. And there is another me lying on the sofa with wine and chocolate watching Pride & Prejudice while dutiful me takes care of the chaos.
      Can’t do polygamy, I don’t think Spectrummy Daddy could handle another wife! Plus, they all have such bad hair, at least the ones on TV do. 😉

  5. oohh, buying yourself on Amazon, I think you are underpriced though!! Jen

  6. Wow only $5.99, that’s the deal of the century! How nice it would be to have two of me, I think that I could spare the change. I’m here from Blog Hop…hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

  7. Yep, I could use about 2 or 3 more of me. I’d settle for about 6 more hands to get stuff done!
    Here’s my post:

  8. Such a great idea! So creative! I have a few more things the 2nd me could do that I’d rather skip, but we’ll keep things light.

  9. That is hilarious! What a great idea. I could use “me” for Christmas too!

  10. I had no idea you could add yourself to your amazon wish list. 5.99 is a definite bargain. I wonder if the other me would like to clean bathrooms…and windows…hmm.

    • I know, it automatically came up with that price. I was momentarily offended at how low they valued me, but then I figured I could afford a few and life would be even easier! I hope at least one of my other selves is good at housework. 😉
