Dear Santa 

Dear Santa, 

I thought of what I wanted and then I changed my mind. 

There are so many options toys of every kind. 

I thought I wanted play-doh or maybe a sweet doll. 

Then I thought I wanted gum but mom would take it all.  

I think that I’ve been good this year behaving to my best 

Even though my brother is an endless, awful pest.  

I think I’d like some books to read or instruments to play. 

How about some brand new clothes or shoes to do ballet. 

I promise I’ll be good for mom and help my dad a lot 

Would you bring a puppy, tell mom his name is Spot? 

I don’t know if you’ll get this in time to make my stuff 

But elfs are always busy I’m sure they’ll have enough. 

I don’t think that I’m picky or spoiled like my friend. 

I only want a few new things, what do you recommend?  

Thank you Mr. Santa, you really are the best.  

I don’t care what my friends tell me you are a welcome guest. 



A Name A Day: Nathan

Feel free to participate in A Name A Day. Write a story, poem, or something about a real individual you know with the name of the day. If you have a name that you would like for the blog please send me a message. Please keep it all positive.  

This is part of my positivity plan. Allowing others to see their names in print and then stories or poems that are positive about them is reinforcing to adults and children. This is my first time hosting a “challenge” so if you have pointers or need to tell me how to do something differently, please do, I don’t take offense to creative feedback.  

Enjoy this! I will post a few random names until people choose to participate and give some names. I will continue as long as people would like to participate. I believe it will be nice for any blogger to share with a friend or family member poems “about them” from so many talented writers. Enjoy!
