There was a time not super long ago when my idea of a wonderful gift would be a solo shower. Those days are successfully in my past now and I can take showers, short ones, without anyone screaming for me from their crib or banging on the door urgently. Baths are still largely out of the question.

Christmas is about giving, but I think every mom hopes for something each year.

Me? I asked for a Stitch Fix gift card (so I can buy something from my next box guilt free), but what I really want is a full day with ZERO fighting. I know that's a Christmas miracle even Santa can't make happen so I'll be looking for that gift card! I asked some of my mom friends to share what they really want for Christmas, here's what made their lists.
