A very accurate Christmas Wishlist written by a fellow baby loss mommy (with a few of my own modifications)...
1. Kleenex, for all the crying I'll surely be doing. If you want to make it really special, you can get me a couple boxes of that expensive 8-ply stuff that is super thick and smells like fancy lotion. A few travel packs for my purse would be nice, too, so the next time I'm in the middle of Target and see a 'baby's first Christmas' ornament, I have something to sob into (other than my poor jacket sleeve).
2. Noise-canceling headphones, to drown out all the happy Christmas music playing everywhere I go. Seriously, if I have to hear the phrase 'it's the most wonderful time of the year' one more time, I'm going to freak. More like 'it's the most depressing, heartbreaking time of the year,' if you ask me.
3. White wine. Lots of it. Seriously, how else am I supposed to get through this month??
4. A concussion. A little bit of memory loss would be nice, so I can stop thinking about how wonderful my life was this month a year ago.
5. A vacation. A completely isolated tropical island would be ideal.
6. My baby boy back.
